Langley City joins regional initiative to simultaneously re-open services

22 municipalities are coordinating re-opening dates in an attempt to simplify and lessen confusion

Each municipality in Metro Vancouver is working to re-open parks, recreation, cultural and library services to residents and patrons, noting than many lessons have been learned with COVID-19 along the way.

A recent joint media statement from 22 different municipalities in the Lower Mainland, said that wherever possible, municipalities are coordinating re-opening dates in an attempt to simplify and lessen confusion.

The simultaneous plan comes after the closure of many parks and services during the COVID-19 outbreak were staggered and conflicting of other municipality regulations.

Langley City is included in the regional coordination of re-opening dates, but not Langley Township.

Langley City had closed all public playgrounds on March 20 as well as sports courts, outdoor fitness equipment, picnic shelters, bike skills park and pump track, and park washrooms – many of which has already reopened.

City of Langley Library is accepting hold pick ups, but the physical space remains closed.

Given that the scope of amenities varies widely from city to city, the re-opening dates of some services will differ in each jurisdiction, the statement noted.

“To ensure that you are up to date on your city’s re-opening dates, please check your city’s website or social media channels,” the release explained.
