Other public health measures, such as indoor masking and youth screening will be lifted effective March 1, 2022 per provincial direction.
Members of the public are reminded to book recreation programming, classes, and public 'Splash & Play' times online through the regular booking process.
Sport and Recreation
Guidelines have been developed to support sport, physical activity and recreation organizations, participants and facilities in reducing the risk of transmission of COVID-19 among attendees. Individuals participating in organized activities sanctioned by, or affiliated with, a provincial or national organization should ensure they are also complying with their governing body’s guidelines, assuming they meet or exceed provincial guidelines.
Please refer to the provincial sport and recreation guidelines for more information
