Chestermere eases indoor gathering rules; opens bike park, courts, skatepark and playgrounds June 1

Reopening Announcement May 28

Earlier today, Mayor Marshall Chalmers and Director of Emergency Management Bernie Morton announced some easing of local orders and some additional reopening measures.

“Our community has done well together, and you, Chestermere have brought us to the point to where I can safely announce the reopening of our bike park, our skate park, our tennis courts, our basketball courts, and our playgrounds,” said Morton. “I can also add that friends who have been properly screened and are not displaying any visible signs of illness, can now join your immediate family for gatherings in your homes.”

Details of the updated local regulations are as follows:

  • Home Gatherings: In addition to permanent residents of the home and immediate family, residents can now invite friends to their home as well. It is strongly suggested that any friend is properly screened prior to visiting to ensure that they are not ill. The maximum number of persons allowed at a residence, including friends, family and residents, remains at 15 people.  
  • Playgrounds: The City will begin reopening as many playgrounds as possible on Monday, June 1st and additional playgrounds will open in the coming days as inspections, maintenance, and any repairs are made. A list of which playgrounds are open can be found at Children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to ensure they are monitored and taught about safe play.
  • Bike Park: Starting on June 1st, the pump track and skills loop will reopen at the Bike Park. The updated hours of the park will be Tuesday through Thursday from 10am to 9pm, and Friday through Monday from 12:30 to 9:00pm. Children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to ensure they are monitored and taught about safe play. Visit for more information.
  • Skatepark: The skatepark will be opening on June 1st and all regulations about gathering and distancing apply. Children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  • Basketball and Tennis Courts: Basketball courts and tennis courts will also open June 1st but are limited to 4 people using the facility at any given time. Children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

“While we are pleased that our local numbers are going down, and we are happy to announce some relaxation measures today, please continue to stay vigilant. Together, we can safely reopen and keep this virus at bay,” says Mayor Chalmers.
