Thank You to Public Skating Sponsors 2020 February 20, 2021

The City of North Battleford Parks and Recreation Department would like to recognize and thank the following Services Clubs for their commitment and support toward the Free Public Skating Programs during 2020

· Bonaventure Lions Club

· Kiwanis Club of the Battlefords

· North Battleford Elks Club

· North Battleford Kinsmen Club

· North Battleford Lions Club

· North West Hockey Development

· Rotary Club of the Battlefords

· St. Josephs Knights of Columbus #7336

· The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #70

2020 was a different and difficult year. Although restrictions and provincial guidelines affected many activities, fortunately public skating was deemed an allowable activity, although the maximum number of skaters was reduced to 30 per session.

The generous financial contributions from these organizations allows us to offer free public skating sessions throughout the year. During 2020 a total of 131 hours of free skating programs were offered and 2,217 participants attended.

Providing children and adults with a fun, family friendly recreational activity is an asset and benefit many residents can take advantage of.

The Free skating programs will continue to the end of March, with the following times:

Don Ross Arena. Preschool and Senior skating Thursdays: 10:00 - 11:30 am and 1:30 – 2:30 pm.

Access Communication Centre: Public Skating Saturdays 12:15 – 1:45 pm.

Additional public skating times are added to the schedule during holidays and school breaks, information can be found on the City Calendar at www.cityofnb.ca

Sponsoring the skating programs is only one of many community programs and projects these service clubs contribute to throughout the year.

Thank you!

Responsible Pet Ownership February 3, 2021

Pet ownership is a rewarding privilege – pets enrich our lives with companionship and unconditional love. To ensure a safe and healthy co-existence between your pet and the residents of North Battleford, be a responsible pet owner and a good neighbour by following these guidelines.

Required Responsibilities

All dogs and cats owned within the City of North Battleford must be licensed and wearing a tag issued by the City. Municipal Enforcement Officers will make every effort to reunite licensed dogs or cats if they should stray. Pet licenses are available for purchase at City Hall during regular business hours.

  • Pets must remain on their owner’s property, and they must be leashed whenever in a public area unless they are at the off-leash dog park

  • Pick up after your pet, on and off of your property and dispose of waste properly

  • Ensure your pet does not bite, injure, chase or threaten anyone or other pets

  • A maximum of five animals allowed per home

Additional Tips for Responsible Pet Owners

  • Spay or neuter your pet – discounts available on annual pet licenses

  • Discourage consistent howling, whining and barking

  • Provide for socialization, exercise, playtime and mental stimulation for your pet

  • Groom your pets as necessary

  • Book annual veterinarian check-ups and have booster shots done as required

Cats are non-native predators that kill countless songbirds each year. Cats can become community nuisances by digging in your neighbour’s yard and defecating on their property. Creating an outdoor enclosed cat run will protect it from traffic, wildlife, poisons and diseases without trespassing on another person’s property.
