Safety and wellness policies and procedures

We have a few new policies and procedures in place for everyone’s safety and wellbeing. Here is what you can expect:

  • Leave your belongings in your car, as we no longer offer lockers. We do have a few cubbies in the front entrance way.
  • You will be given a personal spray bottle for cleaning equipment. Clean the equipment before and after you use it. Leave the bottle at the back door when exiting the building. You will find paper towels throughout the Rec Centre for cleaning.
  • You will still be able to fill your personal water bottle, but will be unable to drink from the fountain. Please remember to BYOB (bring your own bottle).
  • Our equipment has been spaced out and we have used the basketball court area to meet physical distancing requirements. This means that we no longer offer any type of court sport.
  • We will no longer be offering towel service or showers on site. Please remember to bring your own sweat towel.
  • We still have our wonderful studio and weight room.
  • Our prices have not changed, but you are required to have a membership or punch-pass to use the facility. We no longer offer a one-time drop-in fee.


Members of the public are welcome to join the Recreation Centre. Find pass options and membership rates.


The Recreation Centre is located on College Drive and is a 10-minute walk from the Grant Building.

Parking is available free of charge for members and drop-in visitors. Ask for a pass at the reception desk.
