Town of Riverview gives update on facilities after Zone 1 moves to orange phase

RIVERVIEW (N.B.) – The Town of Riverview wishes to update residents regarding the status of municipal facilities following today’s provincial decision to move Zone 1 to the ‘orange’ level COVID-19 recovery phase:

  • The Byron Dobson Memorial Arena will remain open. Activities will be restricted to single-team practices provided all teams have an active COVID-19 Operational Plan. Spectators will not be permitted in the arena during practices.
  • The Pat Crossman Memorial Aquatic Centre will remain open. Swimming lessons will be paused and all other activity capacities will be reduced in accordance with operational plans. Regular user groups will be contacted with further details for their specific rental.
  • The following Town facilities will remain open in accordance with public health guidelines and each facility’s COVID-19 Operational Plan:
    • Coverdale Centre
    • Bridgedale Centre
    • Skate Park / Youth Centre
    • Riverview Community Hall
    • Fitness Studio, Biggs Drive 
    • (Any individuals or user groups uncertain about booked events should contact the facility directly for further guidance.)
  • The Parks, Recreation and Community Relations Office on Biggs Drive will remain open. The Riverview Dog Park also remains open. Sports fields were previously closed for the season.
  • Riverview’s parks, playgrounds and trails will remain open. Users are reminded to follow provincial guidelines at all times. In the orange phase, this means face masks must be worn in public spaces, both indoors and outdoors. Outdoor public spaces include parks, playgrounds, markets, festival sites, dog parks, and walking trails. A mask is not required while walking, jogging or cycling if individuals in the same bubble are unlikely to come within two metres of people from outside their bubble. *Since Riverview’s Riverfront Trail is less than three meters wide and, in some places narrower, trail users will be within range of those outside their bubble. As a result, all Riverfront Trail users MUST wear a mask.
  • The Reaching for Rainbows Daycare, which operates out of the Riverview Community Hall, will remain open. Contact reachingforrainbows@outlook.com and/or 389-1442 for additional information.
  • For information about the status of the Boys and Girls Club daycare, operated out of the Coverdale Centre, visit https://www.bgcriverview.com.

Should the COVID-19 recovery phase change, the Town of Riverview will update residents and contact user groups. All Town of Riverview updates relating to the COVID-19 pandemic can be found here: https://www.townofriverview.ca/coronavirus-covid-19
