Spring recreation programs cancelled and facilities closed until June 22, 2020. See below for details.
COVID-19 Update: Recreation Programs Cancelled and Facilities Closed to June 22, 2020.
As you are aware, on March 14th the Town responded to the threat posed by COVID-19 virus by cancelling programs, closing facilities and adjusting the scope of our services as directed by the Medical Officer of Health. The Town has had to make the further difficult decision to cancel all registered programs and facility rentals for the spring session. At this time we do not expect facilities to be open or recreation programs to be offered until the end of June. We anticipate indoor facilities including pools, arenas, community centres, youth centres and theatre will be closed until June 22, 2020, though we will consider reopening if conditions allow. Parks, sports field and ball diamond rentals (including special events) are suspended until further notice.
