​Barrie Parks

Living in Barrie is a walk in the park! The City of Barrie maintains 300 hectares of scenic park space.

Avoid crowds, wash your hands thoroughly and often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer, and stay at least 2 metres away from those not part of your household. ​Refer to the Guide to Safe Outdoor Activities During COVID-19.

Closed Amenities in Parks

Waterfront fitness equipment, skateboard parks, tennis courts, basketball courts and picnic areas/pavilions are closed to public access.​

Meridian Place Closed

On April 29, 2021, Mayor Jeff Lehman issued an emergency order to immediately close and fence off Meridian Place. This action was taken in response to the ongoing gatherings that have occurred at Meridian Place contrary to the Provincial Stay-at-Home Order, provincial legislation and regulations, the City’s COVID-19 Emergency Measures By-law, and Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit’s public health guidelines.
