Although Ottawa has partially reopened its city parks and green spaces for recreational purposes, a lot of confusion exists among the public regarding where exactly they can go and what they can and can’t do. Sports fields are still off limits, and organized games are not permitted in parks, but jogging, walking and playing catch are permitted as long as distancing is practised.
