City of Calgary opening four recreation centres tomorrow

Jul 9 2020, 9:26 am

The City of Calgary has announced that it will be reopening four recreation centres as of this Friday, July 10.

The reopenings are part of the city’s plan to gradually reopen a number of its recreational facilities, from ice rinks to swimming pools, over the coming months.

According to the city, all locations have established procedures with public and staff safety being top priority, given that the COVID-19 pandemic is still a real threat to the population.

The four locations being reopened this Friday are the Bob Bahan Aquatic and Fitness Centre, Canyon Meadows Aquatic and Fitness Centre, Glenmore Aquatic Centre, and Killarney Aquatic and Recreation Centre.

“The public can expect a different experience when they return to City-operated recreation facilities,” said Calgary Recreation Superintendent Michelle Tait in an earlier release.

“We are helping to ensure the safety of staff and customers by introducing COVID-19 user terms and conditions in alignment with provincial public health guidelines. These include access by appointment, physical distancing, gathering restrictions, hand hygiene and staying home if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.”

The opening of these four centres comes 10 days sooner than previously expected, with a June 25 release from the city stating that they would be opened by July 20.
