Splash Pad Open – The Carleton Place Recreation & Culture Department is pleased to announce that the Splash Pad in Riverside Park is now open. In order to use the splash pad area safely, it is required that users maintain physical distancing, wash or sanitize hands regularly, and use your elbow (not your hands) to activate the splash pad.

Municipal Childcare Facilities Reopening July 6th – The municipal childcare facilities at 3 Francis Street and 351 Bridge Street (Carambeck) will be reopening on July 6th, 2020. Spaces may be limited depending on the demand and strict cohort numbers as provided by the Province. Management will ensure that both facilities are in compliance with all new regulatory requirements and that staff are trained on the new procedures prior to opening. Policies and procedures are being updated and created where necessary to align with operational guidance set out by the Ministry of Education Early Years Division and our local Health Unit. Social distancing will be encouraged but at times it may not be realistic for some age groups. PPE has been acquired and will be readily available for staff. There will be a strict screening process and limited access to the buildings until otherwise noted. Please feel free to contact staff at 613-253-0597 if you have any questions or you need further information.
