Public Service Announcement
Kinsmen Park Holiday Opening
Information for the Public
Release Date: December 4, 2020
The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay Department of Community Services & Recreation is pleased to advise residents that Kinsmen Park will be open throughout the holiday season for snowshoeing and walking activities effective Saturday, December 5, 2020.
In the past, a Snowshoeing venue was available to residents at Husky Park. However, in Winter 2019 / 2020, the snowshoeing venue was at Kinsmen Park. The response was overwhelming, so we will offer this same service for Winter 2020/2021 and just in time for the holiday season.
To make the holidays a little brighter, the Department of Community Services & Recreation has been busy decorating to give the facility a truly festive spirit.
The lighting will allow snowshoers and walkers the ability to enjoy the facility at no charge from:
Mondays to Thursdays from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
Access to Kinsmen Park will be from the parking lot only, and washroom facilities are not available at Kinsmen Park. Please practice physical distancing at all times when accessing the facility.
In consultation with officials at Labrador Grenfell Health and guidance released by the Provincial Chief Medical Officer of Health’s office, the 12th Council of Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Management, and Staff will continue to monitor updates relating to the pandemic and update residents regularly.
Residents will also notice holiday lighting missing from utility poles throughout the community. Due to our community’s utility workers’ health and safety, the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay will not be installing holiday lighting on utility poles. Community Services & Recreation staff have repurposed the holiday lighting at venues such as Kinsmen Park and Husky Park, as well as other areas around town.
