The Sports Bureau (ID) announced in a statement on Thursday that the pedalos (also known as pedal boats) at Anim’Arte Nam Van will be back in action tomorrow, after the closure of the service since early this year when the COVID-19 epidemic emerged.
The statement pointed out that according to the annual schedule, the pedalo service runs daily from 11 am to 7 pm during the summer – from 1 June to 30 September, while the facility closes at 6 pm on the remaining days of the year.
The Nam Van Lake pedalos started operating in 2016.
According to the bureau’s website, a fee of MOP 20 is charged for using a two-seat pedalo on the lake for 30 minutes, while a fee of MOP 40 is charged for a four-seat pedalo. Children aged under five are not allowed onboard the boats, and those aged between 5 and 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Various kinds of public sports facilities have gradually reopened since early March after their respective COVID-19 epidemic-induced closures. The city’s nine public swimming pools reopened early last month.
Most of the city’s public sports facilities are operated by the Sports Bureau, while the open-air public basketball courts and mini football fields scattered across the city are managed by the Municipal Affairs Bureau (IAM).
