Updates: COVID-19 Response

June 24, 2020 13:00 hrs: Reopening Plans

The City has tentative plans in place to reopen recreational facilities in a phased and responsible approach, taking into account safety protocols, government guidelines, and staffing considerations.


When reopening facilities, unexpected delays sometimes result as mechanical systems are put back in operation. The following anticipated timelines are tentative, weather dependent and pending any unforeseen circumstances:

  • Family Leisure Centre
    • South Country Co-op Fitness Centre – week of July 6
    • Cenovus Arena – week of July 6
    • Kinsmen Aquatic Centre – week of July 13
    • Gymnasium/Fieldhouse – week of July 20
  • Outdoor Pools
    • Hill Outdoor Pool – closed for the season as of August 5, 2020
    • Strathcona Outdoor Pool  - open July 10 - August 30, 2020
  • Crestwood Rec Centre – undetermined
  • Echo Dale- open  July 17 - Sept 7, 2020

Plans to resume programming like group fitness classes and swimming lessons are underway, but a tentative date has not been determined. Pricing structures are also being established with capacity levels and physical distancing considerations. More info will be announced soon.


City staff continue to liaise with the Province, Alberta Health Services, and other communities to ensure best practices are incorporated into facility reopening plans.


During the closure of the FLC, staff completed annual shut-down work that normally occurs in August. This amenity will be available to the community for the remainder of the summer once it is reopened.
