Here’s some good news: the city will open pools this summer. Pine Point opened earlier this week, and Weston Lions will open June 19. All city pools will be open their regular hours once school is out.
The city is re-opening many sports, recreation, and library facilities. In Weston and Mount Dennis, you should be able to
- Use the dog parks
- Golf at Scarlett Woods
- Fish at the Humber and Topham Pond
- Play tennis
For the time being, playgrounds, pools, and splash pads remain closed. The Weston Farmers’ Market will not open until mid-summer, at the soonest. The soccer field at Weston Lions Park, which had attracted players in violation of distancing rules, remains closed.
The Weston Public Library will reopen for curbside pickup of book holds on June 1. Borrowers will be able to return their loans through the drop box. The library is asking that you hold onto any large or fragile items.
On a cool summer solstice, staff are getting set to open Weston Lions Outdoor Pool at noon on Saturday June 24. The water’s in place; but it looks as if a bit of weeding still needs to be done.
Next week, there will be no afternoon swims but beginning Friday, June 30, the pool’s regular hours will be 12:00 – 3:45 pm and 5:00 – 7:30 pm. The pool will close at 4:00 pm on September 4th.
