New provincial guidelines to limit the spread of COVID-19 will take effect at our recreation facilities on Friday, November 27. These restrictions include limits on capacity and permitted activities. City-operated facilities remain open for pre-booked appointments and individual bookings.

Athletic Parks

Select athletic parks and fields are now open for booking permits. See athletic park pages for booking and availability. Walking spaces are open in six athletic parks for non-permitted use. More fields are being added throughout July and August, however not all fields may open in 2020.

Remaining athletic parks are scheduled to reopen based on demand.

Athletic Parks are available for bookings between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. seven days a week during prime athletic park season (May to September). City-owned athletic parks are closed on statutory holidays unless privately booked.
