Walking Etiquette

When using the facility for your walking convenience; please consider staff and other users while on the concourse. Here are a few simple guidelines to follow:

  1. Share the concourse: DO NOT walk 3-4 abreast. When walking with a friend, be alert to others who need to get around you and manoeuvre into single file to allow them to pass easily.
  2. Follow the given direction for the day. Direction arrows are posted on posts ‘C’, ‘G’ and ‘E’ for walking inside or you may walk in the lower parking lot outside.
  3. DO NOT walk right on the outer perimeter as the risk of collision is high. Doors open unexpectedly and no one wants to be injured.
  4. Use proper waste receptacles for any wrappers or empty drink containers.

Inside Distances

  • 1 Lap around the concourse = 800 feet
  • 4 laps = 1 kilometre
  • 7 laps = 1 mile

Outside Distances:

  • 4 laps around back half parking lot = 1 kilometre
  • 1 lap around building & entire back parking lot = 1 kilometre
  • Management and Staff reserve the right to ask people to leave if not adhering to these guidelines
