Kingsville Council Approves New Curfew For Lions Park

After several concerns raised by residents regarding  misuse, late-night loitering and disruptive behaviour at Lions Park council has approved a new curfew.

The curfew makes it unlawful for any person to be on the grounds of Lions Park from sunset until 5:00 am. Sunset varies depending on the time of year, and the public and enforcement officials can reference specific sunset times for each day on the Government of Canada’s website.

“This amendment will allow us to gauge the effectiveness of an earlier curfew at Lions Park for the remainder of the year, and if it proves effective, Council could consider making a permanent change,” Dan Wolicki, Manager of Municipal Facilities and Properties.

The Town will update signage at Lions Park to reflect the change. Residents are encouraged to continue reporting public disturbances, legitimate misuse, and unwanted park behaviour directly to enforcement officials or the Ontario Provincial Police.
