The City of Medicine Hat says it’s working towards getting playground structures open again.

Emergency Management Director Merrick Brown says the city has received guidelines on what is needed.

Brown says some things need to be done before they are opened.

Brown says, “We need to inspect every single one of the playground structures, in order for those playground structures to be designated as safe to use for the children in the community to use.  So, this does take time.”

The City of Medicine Hat has approximately 80 structures in various parks and areas of the city.

The City is coordinating playground efforts with school boards and surrounding communities so they can all be opened at the same time.
