After being closed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the gazebo at Queen’s Royal Park reopened July 2.

However, the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake is extending the cancellations of in-person meetings and the closure of some town facilities.

The town said it is “keeping in line with preventative measures being extended by the province amid the roll-out of recovery measures,” in a media release.

Summer camp programs will remain open “in accordance with guidelines outlined in the province’s Stage 2 framework for reopening.”

Town staff are accepting and reviewing special event permit applications on a case-by-case basis and are issuing permits for those that meet guidelines laid out by the province and Niagara Region.

Staff are also looking into the possibility of continuing regularly scheduled advisory committee meetings in an electronic format, the release said.

The following facilities remain closed:

  • Niagara-on-the-Lake Library (closed to the public but offering curbside pick-up and online services)
  • Queenston Library
  • Niagara-on-the-Lake Community Centre (open for summer camp activities only)
  • Meridian Credit Union Arena & Centennial Arena (open for summer camp activities only)
  • Town administration buildings

“As we continue to move forward with recovery measures, including the reopening and recommencement of some programming, we ask residents and visitors to remain vigilant in adhering to public health recommendations, specifically with respect to physical distancing within these open facilities,” the town stated.

Gazebo bookings can be made by calling community centre staff at 905-468-4386, ext. 1.
