City of Kamloops Wins Recognition Provincially in Public Works

City of Kamloops is Closing all City Play Structures and Installing Social Distancing Signage at other Parks

To encourage compliance with social distancing measures, the City of Kamloops is closing all City-run play structures effective immediately. In addition, the City is installing signage about social distancing at all City parks, skate parks, dog parks, and courts. 


Closure signage is being installed today at 48 play structures including Riverside Park, Campbell Creek Park, Brocklehurst Park, Westmount Park, Albert McGowan Park, Tournament Capital Ranch, Stuart Wood, McArthur Island, and all City-run tot lots. The fields at these playgrounds are not closed, only the play structures.


Bylaw Services will be closely monitoring social distancing at all City parks and other public gathering areas.  If social distancing practices are not being adhered to, the City may close other public gathering areas in the near future.
