  • The hot tub, sauna and steam room will remain closed until stage 3 of Alberta’s Relaunch Plan.
  • Open gym times will start when we reach stage 3 of Alberta’s Relaunch Plan.
  • We hope to have limited fitness classes (spin) starting in July – we are waiting on availability of instructors. More information to come once we have that confirmation.
  • The indoor play centre is not accessible to the public until further notice (it is currently being used by the day care while their space is under construction).

This schedule has been created based on the City’s ability to get trained staff in place, get mechanical systems running, gather supplies and PPE, and ensure cleaning schedules can be followed. We thank everyone for their patience and understanding as get prepared to re-open and deliver services again.
