Outdoor lovers can still enjoy their sports

July 16, 2020   ·   0 Comments

It’s the summer of alternative entertainment and exercise.

With sports leagues cancelled for the summer or heavily restricted when it comes to training, many people are taking up some alternative activities for the summer.

While the region has always had an abundance of outdoor recreation activities with many people enjoying spending time on the water or on hiking trails, more people than ever are discovering what you can do when your slo-pitch team has thrown in the towel for the summer.

Earl Rowe Provincial Park is open to visitors; however, there are restrictions in place to ensure social distancing. In addition, swimming is currently being discouraged due to a high level of bacteria making for possibly unsafe conditions for anyone entering the water. The pool is currently closed.

Many activities are allowed however others have been temporarily stopped. Some facilities will remain unavailable for the time being and most likely for the rest of the summer.

Camping is allowed but there are restrictions so you should check before deciding to make a trip to the park.

While swimming is discouraged, playing on the water is okay.

The lake at the park is a popular spot for fishing and recreational canoeing and kayaking. However, if you want to go on the water you will have to bring your own boat. The Park is not offering canoe or kayak rentals and paddle boats are also sitting idle for the time being. There are no bike rentals this summer.

In spite of the restrictions, the Park is busy with many people visiting to enjoy some outdoor activity and get some exercise.
