The City of Kenora has announced that all of the city’s beaches, public washrooms and the Rotary Splash Park have all reopened for community use.
While at the beach, residents are asked to keep 2 metres away from others, wear a face covering whenever possible, to limit group sizes, to bring hand sanitizer and to wash your hands regularly.
Residents are asked to use the same safety precautions while at the Rotary Splash Park. The park’s hours have also been reduced, and are now listed as open between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
The city’s outdoor public washrooms are cleaned twice daily, but not throughout the day. Staff say that thorough hand washing is a must, and the use of hand sanitizer is recommended. The washroom at the Central Ball Park will remain closed due to construction.

- Norman Beach,
- Millennium Ball Park (A&W)
- Jaffray Melick Ball Park,
- Garrow Beach,
