Tecumseh Parks and Recreation has cancelled all recreational programs and events scheduled for the month of June. These include Power Off and Playground Program, Tecumseh Leisure Pool Public Recreational Swims and Lessons and Lakewood Park’s Summer Concert Series.

“Today’s decision is a result of the ongoing provincial orders aimed at reducing exposure to COVID-19 in the community,” said Gary McNamara, Mayor of Tecumseh. “We continue to have to make decisions around public recreation and I am hopeful everyone understands and supports these decisions.”

All Tecumseh park equipment and play structures remain closed, including Baseball Diamonds, Disc Golf, Pickleball Courts, Soccer Pitches and Tennis Courts. Public health officials remind residents to: stay home if you are sick; practice physical distancing while walking in parks and on trails; avoid touching surfaces and wash your hands with soap and water and/or use hand sanitizer frequently.

“Tecumseh Recreation staff continue to follow provincial orders and are working on various scenarios to offer programming once restrictions are lifted and recreation areas are allowed to re-open,” said Paul Anthony, Director of Parks and Recreation. “Until then, we encourage residents to use our Virtual Recreation Complex page of our website (www.tecumseh.ca/virtualrecreation) for links on how to stay active and in motion while at home”.
