June 4, 2020 – City to begin accepting athletic field bookings
Beginning Friday, June 5, we will begin contacting existing athletic field permit holders whose permits were temporarily suspended due to COVID-19 to give them first priority for re-booking the field. If there are no changes to the permit, the permit will be issued. If there are changes to the permit, or if new permits are being requested, booking information will be collected and confirmed at a later date.
As part of the athletic field booking agreement, organizations will be agreeing to follow provincial health orders that are required for their sport to operate, and City of Winnipeg orders regarding social distancing.
For more information on athletic field bookings, see: City of Winnipeg - Athletic Fields.
