The City of Abbotsford will be starting to re-open outdoor recreational spaces starting May 19th announced Mayor Henry Braun today.


Sport courts including tennis, pickleball, basketball and skate parks will be re-opened with new safety guidelines in place. Park users must still maintain physical distancing of 2 metres as directed by the Provincial Health Officer, and adhere to all signage posted in the parks.

Other amenities such as playgrounds and City recreation centres remain closed until further notice.  All other civic facilities such as City Hall will also remain closed to the public until further notice.

The City continues to engage with Fraser Health, as well as the Provincial and Federal government for information on revised best practices for re-opening safely.




“I’m inspired by the work of our community in pulling together over the past two months to help curb the spread of COVID-19.  We must continue to follow the direction of our Provincial Medical Officer as we re-open various City amenities, starting with our sports courts on May 19th.  We all still have a role to play in supporting each other and keeping safety at the front of our minds, and we ask our residents to be patient as we work through our re-opening plans.”
