New COVID rules for skate parks
Face coverings are now required for all users of the Windsor skate park. Failure to comply will result in park closures. Do your part and keep the park open, and wear a mask at all times. Skate park users should also maintain six feet of distance between themselves and others and only go to the skate park if they have no symptoms.
