Castlegar playgrounds and washrooms reopen

City of Castlegar opening playgrounds and washrooms as part of COVID-19 reopening process

Local kids once again have a place to play as the City of Castlegar reopens playgrounds as part of its COVID-19 reopening process.

Public washrooms at city parks and the sani-dump station at the Visitor Centre have also reopened.

City playgrounds have been closed since the middle of March and park washrooms and the sani-dump station were not opened for the season due to the pandemic.
