Public Play Sturcutres in Ponoka Closed
All play structures in public parks and on school playgrounds in Ponoka are now CLOSED until further notice to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
“As the weather warms up and these play structures become popular attractions, the hard surfaces on playground equipment become a risk for virus transmission.

He notes the playground equipment on school playgrounds have been closed in cooperation with local boards.
