As the next step in re-opening the Town’s amenities, the playground at the fishpond and the skatepark were reopened for public use on May 28.
Signage recommending safe physical distancing and to wash hands both before and after use has been posted at both sites as these facilities are not sanitized. The Lion’s Park playground will remain closed for several weeks as the Town works quickly to complete a rejuvenation project adding new swings and other playground equipment to the site.
The Magrath Campsite will be open to the public for camping as of June 8. The bathrooms at the camp site will be opened and sanitized daily.
“However, in accordance with the province’s guidance documents we will not be opening the camp kitchens or the pavilion unless that guidance is changed during the season,” reads a statement on the town’s website.
Regular campground prices will remain the same as last year, $25 per night for the powered and $15 per night for the unpowered sites. However, there will be an additional “COVID fee” of $5 per night this season so the Town is able to cover the additional costs of maintenance and cleaning that is required for the camping season.
Cardston County gravel weeks for June, August
Gravel weeks for June and August have been set for June 15-19 and August 17-21. Pit orders will be finalized 1-2 weeks in advance. If you are interested in purchasing gravel, you will need to stop by the Administration Building to request a purchase order prior to receiving any gravel.
You will then need to bring the purchase order to the pit when you arrive to pick up the gravel. The price per yard is $10 (+ GST).
“If you do not have a purchase order when you arrive at the pit, you will not receive gravel,” reads a statement from the county’s administration.
Customers are asked to wear a high visibility safety vest while in the pit area.
