UPDATE April 27, 2021 Media release from PNE/Playland: “Playland was set to open on Saturday, May 1st with a strong safety plan supported by Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH). We had confidence in our ability to provide a safe outdoor experience for local families. During discussions today with the Provincial Health Office concerns were raised related to Playland drawing travel outside of the regional health authorities. Due to this concern, we were asked to remain closed until after the May long weekend to support the provincial circuit breaker. We are looking forward to opening to our park to guests following the May long weekend.”

Playland has announced that it will be open Saturdays and Sundays starting May 1, 2021. Hours will be 11:00am to 5:00pm on weekends, and it will be operating with significantly reduced capacities, physical distancing, enhanced cleaning procedures, and masks required on rides and in all queue lines.
