Your Safety At Granary Road
I was so impressed with how Granary Road has mandated its sanitizing protocols for COVID-19. Going above AHS requirements a designated staff just for the outdoor exhibits can be seen walking around sanitizing all of the high touch areas throughout the day. This means that the play areas are sanitized roughly every 1.5 hours.
Inside throughout the marketplace, gift shop, food area you will also find many visual reminders to maintain physical distancing and an equally diligent cleaning schedule too. Whether inside or outside there are also many hands sanitizing stations throughout.
Granary Road is located at 226066 112 Street W, Foothills No. 31, just outside of Calgary. For more details or to plan your visit check out their website here.
Our visit to Granary Road was hosted, however, as always all opinions are own.
