Recreation phased reopening

Recreation phased reopening

We are working hard to keep you safe and healthy as we reopen our recreation facilities, programs and services. We are taking extra precautions and reopening in phases to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and keep facilities open.

Unfortunately, we are unable to reopen everything at this time. There are many factors we consider when making the strategic decisions to keep some things closed. This includes:

  • Safety: Our number one priority is the health and safety of our customers and staff. We continue to align our practices with current provincial guidelines and restrictions. Preventing outbreaks allows us to remain open for everyone.
  • Customer demand: We are balancing the amenities we have available with the amount of customer appointments and user/sport group booking requests.
  • Financial feasibility: Limiting capacity and offerings has reduced the revenue we have to run our facilities and programs. Managing what is open helps us keep our rates and fees affordable, and helps us maintain fiscal responsibility.
  • Community need: Other recreation and fitness providers are also providing limited offerings across the city. We have reviewed the location of these offerings.
  • Facility state of readiness: Some of our facilities need planned repairs and maintenance before they can reopen.

These factors are evolving. We continue to evaluate reopening additional facilities, programs and services. Updates will be posted as information becomes available.
