We all need to be able to enjoy safe and healthy outdoor exercise. To that end, NCC parks and lands remain accessible to the public, provided that people follow public health directives.
The NCC’s preventive measures stated below are in place for all its assets, at all times.
We encourage all users of NCC parkways, pathways and trails to carefully review and comply with the latest guidelines from their local and provincial health authorities.
- Ottawa Public Health
- Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux de l’Outaouais
- Government of Quebec
- Government of Ontario
With everyone’s cooperation and compliance, we can all safely enjoy the outdoors.
At all times
If you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, are waiting for test results or have tested positive, stay home and follow isolation guidelines.
Stay at least two metres (six feet) apart from those outside your household, even if you are wearing a mask or face covering.
Wear a mask or face covering where required, or when physical distancing is not possible. Have your mask with you at all times.
|Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer regularly, especially before touching your face. Have hand sanitizer with you at all times.|
|Follow directional signage.|
Front-line workers: Thank you!
The NCC recognizes the hard work and commitment of front-line workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. We dedicated a park bench to them in 2021, and a special tulip bed, the “tulips of thanks” bed, in 2022. You can find both in Major’s Hill Park.
