Reopening recreation in Port Colborne continues

Posted by Corporate Communications on Tuesday, August 4th, 2020

The City’s parks and recreation division are continuing to reopen recreation opportunities to provide residents and visitors a safe return to sport and recreation. The following recreation amenities have already, or will be, reopening in a phased approach:

Vale Health & Wellness Centre

Rink 1 at the Vale Health & Wellness Centre will be welcoming back skaters as of Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2020, to permit holders only offering training opportunities for hockey players and figure skaters.

All users are to follow the outlined public/user rules and regulations, including wearing a mask/face covering as per the Niagara Region Face Covering By-law.

To ensure adherence to the indoor gathering limits set out by the Province in stage three of their reopening framework, the walking track and remainder of the Vale Health & Wellness Centre will remain closed to the public until further notice.

The Port Colborne YMCA has a plan in place to resume safe programming opportunities for their members in the coming weeks. To stay up to date on YMCA reopening plans, visit their website.

TA Lannan Sports Complex

The TA Lannan Sports Complex has reopened to host the Sir John Colborne Youth Soccer Club (SJCYSC) to provide training opportunities for their athletes. In addition, a local co-ed slo-pitch league will also begin operating a shortened season starting Friday, Aug. 7.

Recreation Programs

Outdoor Zumba classes at the Sugarloaf Marina pavilion will be returning on Monday, Aug. 10. Classes will run every Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7 – 8 p.m. Fees are $5 per class and can be paid to the instructor upon arrival. Sugarloaf Marina offices and washrooms, including the water bottle refill station, will not be available for access during the outdoor class times.
