Playground closure annoucement

Mar 23, 2020

As of 12:30 pm on Sunday, March 22nd, all Playgrounds in Courtenay are closed. This is serious. Stay calm, stay positive, stay home.

Sunday March 22 12:30 Update

All playgrounds in Courtenay are closed. Our council has been working on this issue since last week and wanted to inform people ASAP to avoid them as part of the mission to Flatten the Curve.

I have been in talks with all elected officials to make this a Region Wide effort with each of us having our own announcements. Please be patient as we are in uncharted territory and we want to be making the best decisions to protect our citizens with the limited resources we have. Staff has begun the process to shut them down.

Thanks for all the calls and as always feel free to contact me at or by cell at 250-792-1945 or on Facebook.

Be Kind. Stay Calm. Stay Safe.

Bob Wells

Mayor, City of Courtenay
