Residents urged to walk one way on busy paths

LETHBRIDGE HERALD

In an effort to continue to create safe physical distancing, Lethbridge residents are encouraged to follow one-way directional signage along some of the city’s busiest pathways, including Henderson Lake, Nicholas Sheran Lake and the off-leash dog parks.

Signs with arrows to indicate the direction people should be walking will be added to popular areas around the city, the City said in a news release. If you cannot plan a route that follows a loop or uses multiple pathways and sidewalks, you are urged to maintain a safe two-metre (six-foot) distance at all times. This may mean stepping off the path to let others pass.

If a path or greenspace is busy, move to a different area. It’s a great opportunity to explore the over 177 kilometres of paved pathways and approximately 57 km of natural or gravel trails around the city.

If you’re looking to plan a route or just want to view our pathway network, you can view the City’s interactive map at http://www.lethbridge.ca/pathways or download the Lethbridge Parks app.

Park users can also learn about the importance of social distancing on signs that have been placed around all parks, playgrounds and pathways.

In an effort to maintain the cleanliness of the community, garbage bins will remain available and lids are propped up to minimize touching the surface.

Can we walk the opposite way if we walk backwards?
