- With the exception of the facilities mentioned above, all municipal properties are open to the public subject to the direction of the Town’s operational plan and/or the operational plan of the facility user group (i.e Sussex Tennis Association, Sussex Regional Library, etc).
Signage of the best practices will be posted by the Town at all facilities advising patrons of the requirements to use these Town Facilities.

Sussex Nature Walkway
- Municipal walking trails remain open, however users must follow social distancing requirements as per posted signage.
- The Town continues to encourage individuals and families to take time to exercise and be outdoors, but please do so responsibly. Our trails will remain open for use as we believe that they are a great resource for remaining physically and mentally well.
- The Town advises that if residents do choose to use our trails that they be mindful of maintaining appropriate distances between yourselves and others and also keeping control of your pets. Please observe the Town’s leash requirements and do not let pets run free for the safety of your fellow trail users.
