Closure of Waste Disposal Sites & Outdoor Recreational Amenities

Posted On Friday April 16, 2021

For Immediate Release                                                                        

Following the announcement made today by the Province, all municipal waste disposal sites, playgrounds and recreational amenities in the Township are now closed to the public until further notice.

Effective immediately, the Township will be closing the Loughborough and Portland Waste Disposal sites until further notice in response to the provincial announcement of increased restrictions and the extended stay-at-home order. Regularly scheduled garbage and recycling will continue without disruption.

As a result of the new recreation restrictions put in place, all Township recreational facilities will be closed until further notice. This is further supported by the Province’s decision to restrict outdoor gatherings to members of the same household.

Amenities that are closed until further notice include:

  • Play structures, swings, slides and climbers
  • Sports fields and ball diamonds
  • Basketball, net sport courts
  • Centennial Park’s Off-leash dog park
  • Park washrooms and buildings

Residents can continue to walk through open park spaces and along trails, but must maintain physical distance from others of approximately 2 metres or 6 ft.

The Township of South Frontenac appreciates your understanding and cooperation during these challenging times and will remain available to respond to inquiries via phone and email during regular business hours.
