Windsor Recreation Centres To Remain Closed Into The New year

Windsor City Council has voted to extend the temporary closure of municipal recreation centres into the New Year.

Local arenas, pools and community centres were first closed to the public on December 7th, after the City of Windsor moved into the Red-Control stage.

“We need to do all we can to prevent the spread of COVID-19 locally, before it overwhelms our hospitals,” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “Community centres and recreation programming, by their very nature, encourage gatherings and group participation, which public health officials stress we should avoid right now.”

By proactively keeping temporary closures in place, the Windsor City Council is doing all it can to reduce the risk that recreation facilities would become the site of future outbreaks.

After-school programming in city facilities will continue, and tenants leasing space in city facilities for after-school programs or non-recreation services can continue, but all recreational programming and rentals will remain closed until at least January 15th, 2021.

Outdoor recreation offerings like trails, outdoor sports courts and parks, as well as skating and tobogganing (as soon as conditions allow) remain the best options for residents looking for safe and healthy activity.
