With the City of Ottawa looking to minimize group gatherings, the decision has been made to close all local sports fields.
The ruling includes all football, baseball and soccer fields, as well as tennis courts.
The city manager has told associations and groups that book the sites to plan for a much later opening date.
"I don't anticipate anything happening before the end of June," said Steve Kanellakos.
City parks remain open, and while physical distancing is encouraged, the message it hasn't been fully heeded. On Tuesday, Ottawa by-law officers broke up four large gatherings in three different parks.
