2020 Spring/Summer Leisure Guide

Posted by Corporate Communications on Monday, March 23rd, 2020

Before concerns of COVID-19 entered our community preparations were already underway for our upcoming Spring/Summer season, which includes our bi-annual Leisure Guide. The guide has already been printed and will be arriving at residents’ doorsteps via the Port Colborne Leader/Niagara This Week on Thursday, March 26, 2020. Our interactive online magazine will also be available beginning Thursday, March 26 at http://portcolborne.ca/page/online_port.

As municipal facilities remain closed until further notice, we do have some changes, particularly with respect to program registration, facility bookings and events:

- Registration is still available online via our OnlinePORT. Visit http://portcolborne.ca/page/online_port or call 905-835-2900 ext. 538. If our programs are unable to start at their projected start date, alternative arrangements will be made. Payment will also not be required at the time of registration, but rather at the time of the program start date. We want to ensure recreation programs will be available to Port Colborne residents in the near future without the added financial concerns now.

- As municipal facilities are closed, we can only tentatively schedule future permits for our facilities, including ice time, field rentals and pavilion rentals. Ice surfaces have been removed due to the closure of the Vale Health & Wellness Centre and to perform required maintenance. When public facilities are permitted to reopen, the date when ice is available for use and rentals, as well as the ability to offer Drop-In programming, may be impacted. For rental information, call us at 905-835-2900 ext. 535. Payment will also not be required at the time of booking.

- Some City events and community events have been cancelled or postponed, including our annual Easter Eggstravaganza on April 11. To stay up to date on all city events, visit www.portcolborne.ca/page/events.

We hope our Leisure Guide provides some extra reading material for you and your family during this time of social distancing, but we also hope that it gives you a reason to look forward to future fun in our community. We cannot wait for you to #PORTicipate with us again in our recreational & leisure activities, at our festivals & events, and at our arts & cultural experiences, but for now, let’s all focus on following the recommendations of government and health officials by practicing social and physical distancing so we can be both a healthy and active community.
