Effective Saturday, April 17, 2021 at 12:01 a.m., all outdoor recreational facilities, such as  basketball courts, soccer fields, tennis courts, ball hockey courts, BMX parks, gazebos and picnic tables are closed.

Playgrounds and play structures are open, but everybody is required to maintain physical distancing if they are not from the same household.

A park or recreational area may be open for the purposes of permitting persons to walk through the park or recreational area, or to enjoy the green space. Please note that gathering with people outside of one’s household is prohibited (an individual that lives alone can join one other household). 

Playgrounds are important spaces for children to play and have fun. Here are some things you can do to make sure you, your family and your friends stay safe while visiting a playground.

Sacha's Park

Map icon34 de la Seigneurie, L'Orignal
Sacha's Park is a place where children of all abilities can play together. This park offers  accessible playground equipment, safe and spongy surfacing adapted to mobility, ramping and transfer systems, adaptive swings, splash pad, sensory and interactive stations, and much more.

The park was built in memory of Sacha Chenier, an 11 year old boy who lived in L'Orignal, Ontario. He was severely affected by cerebral palsy and his birth injury also left him blind, epileptic, and with severe cognitive delays. During his lifetime, Sacha was unable to play in most parks as they were not wheelchair accessible. He sadly passed away suddenly on June 9th 2014 due to epilepsy related complications. Sacha's family have pledged $75,000 towards the purchase of property for the park and the balance of funding for equipment and landscaping was obtained through community fund-raising efforts and grants.
