LETHBRIDGE, AB – With all this nice weather, people are getting out to enjoy the sunshine and get some exercise.
The City of Lethbridge laying out some ground rules for fitness businesses hoping to take their classes outdoors as the weather starts to get warmer.
City parks are public spaces that anyone can use without a reservation, but groups must be flexible to work around other park users, as well as maintenance crews.
Fitness classes happening in the River Valley are required to take the natural environment into consideration so native plants and wildlife remain undisturbed.
Businesses must also have a City of Lethbridge licence and insurance before hosting fitness classes in any local parks or greenspaces.
Further information on hosting outdoor fitness classes can be found on the City’s website.
