July 1st, 2021 Stage 3 Re-opening

Stage 3 Re-opening Park Operations

July 1st marks the start of a return to more normal operations. Most of the operating restrictions in place are either being removed or amended. We are anxious to see the end of the medical crisis that for the past 17 months has impacted all of us. We continue to monitor attendance levels and do recommend Park users continue to practice social distancing among non-household gatherings. We also suggest members bring their own hand sanitizer since not all touch surfaces can be cleaned or sanitized on a regular basis.

-If a member or guest is experiencing cold or flu like symptoms we discourage any visit to Midnapore Lake.

-South entry gate opens July 1st.

-Guest limits are increased from 2 per household per day to 10 per household per day. Junior members are permitted to admit 3 guests (included in the maximum of 10).

-For a gathering of greater than 10 walk in guests a Large Group Booking application must be made at least 72 hours in advance.

-Barbecue pits are available for use on a first come, first served basis.

-Picnic shelter bookings are accepted. Member households are limited to reserve a picnic shelter up to 3 times during the summer (June through September) with a maximum of 30 guests per event.

-A proper face mask must be worn when inside the Lake House until at least July 5th.

-The front office will remain closed to walk in traffic and is accessible by appointment only or at the discretion of the most senior office staff member on site.

-Vending machines and water fountains are accessible.

-For the time being, we will continue to admit members using their address. Members are encouraged to bring their cards to check out equipment. Temporarily, equipment may still be issued using the member address during the period while we replace lost or missing member cards.

-Lifejackets (for use with watercraft only) and recreation equipment is available on loan. Check at the front gate to sign out equipment.

-Members may take guests on watercraft.

-Float toys with a capacity of more than one person are permitted for use close to the beach area. Use beyond the beach area requires all persons to supply and wear a life jacket.

Water Slide

Ya-Hoo!! We installed the water slide just in time for summer!!

Boo-Hoo!! I will remove this device in a heartbeat if we do not get a little better behavior and respect from the youth who are using it.

During the past 2 days we have recorded the following incident examples by youth aged 13 to 19 using the water slide;

-jumping from off of the top of the slide.

-slide users preventing other members and guests from accessing the slide

-foul, vulgar language directed at staff as well as adult members on the beach with families present.

-adult members with their families on the beach asking slide users to behave being called ‘Karen’s’ by youth on the slide.

-mocking a young child on the beach who happens to have a disability.

-total disrespect towards staff trying to administer park rules and failure to follow rules.

-disrespect towards other members.

-inappropriate behavior

These incidents involve junior members as well as their guests whom they are responsible for.

These incidents are being investigated and members involved will lose their lake access privilege for most, if not all of this summer.

We want our members to be able to enjoy this facility and expect that some rules are going to be innocently broken. We believe in soft enforcement as our first attempt to resolve a problem and most of the time this is all that is needed. When we have repeated offences by the same member or groups of members, this is another matter that calls out for stricter enforcement.

If this type of behavior continues, members together with their guest(s) will be removed from this facility and not welcomed back.

Water Safety

Water Safety

On Monday afternoon in the company of friends enjoying a fun-filled afternoon at Mahogany Lake, a young girl jumped into the water and did not re-surface. She was located by the Calgary Fire Department Water Rescue Unit and rushed by STARS Air Ambulance to hospital where her condition remains unknown. We hope and pray for her full recovery from such a terrible event.

As tragic as this is however, let this be a reminder that no person, young or old should attempt to swim beyond their ability or in unfamiliar waters. Float toys on the lake offer great summer fun however are not good substitutes for a life preserver in an emergency situation such as a float toy failure. This is why we insist that users wear a PFD when beyond the beach area.

Parents, please remind your children to be safe and swim safe!.
