Activities, programs and services at City recreation facilities have been modified in line with the provincial Relaunch Strategy guidelines and public health orders. Some of the changes users can expect include:

  • Reservation or pre-booking is required for all activities, including those that were previously on a drop-in basis. This includes outdoor fitness classes, lane and public swimming, use of the track and fitness areas and use of the fieldhouse/gymnasium. To reserve an activity, visit Look n Book.
  • Capacity limits on spaces and activities.
  • Participants should arrive no more than 10 minutes prior to their reservation and leave as soon as their activity reservation is over.
  • Reduced hours of operation.
  • Access to lockers will be free in the interim. However, there will be limited availability of lockers and change rooms. Participants are asked to come dressed for their activity and bring only the essentials. Participants are also encouraged to shower at home after their activity. 
  • Program participants may be asked to bring their own equipment, and fitness facility users will find access to equipment has been reduced.
  • A number of amenities will not initially operate during Stage 2, including hot tubs, steam rooms, saunas, childminding, drop-in skating and climbing. In addition, spectator areas will remain closed with caregivers only dropping off and picking up participants.

Reduced program fees will be in place for the foreseeable future as service and program offerings continue to be restricted.
