COVID-19 Update: City of Oshawa to gradually reopen additional outdoor amenities.

In response to the City of Oshawa entering Stage 2 of the Ontario Government’s gradual reopening of communities, the City will open its outdoor splash pads, as well as offer permits for sports training on its outdoor soccer fields, sports fields and ball diamonds. These changes will take effect on Thursday, July 2.


The City of Oshawa’s top priority is the safety and health of its community members and staff. The City’s Pandemic Steering Committee has been working to introduce the gradual reopening of the city in a manner that mitigates risk and follows the medical advice of the Province and Durham Region.

Following the careful review of municipal facilities and programs, below are changes to program services and operations.
Sports Fields for Outdoor Team Sports Training
The City is reinstating permits for sports team training at outdoor soccer fields, sports fields and ball diamonds as of Thursday, July 2.

As directed by the Province, outdoor team sports may resume use of fields for training purposes only and with no scrimmages or games. Physical distancing measures of 2 metres (6 feet) separation must be adhered to at all times when using the fields and diamonds.
Teams are reminded that there is no access to public washrooms or change rooms.
