Recreation During COVID-19
Although the Leisure Centre is not fully open the Parks, Recreation and Culture team has reviewed your feedback to the Re-Opening Recreation Survey and we are offering a Phased approach to Welcoming you back to Recreation this summer. The camps and classes will look a little different than in the past. All our programs have undergone risk assessments and, as a result, new safety measures and procedures have been put in place to keep participants safe. The Mission Leisure Centre remains closed to the public and thus registration will be online. The Parks, Recreation and Culture Department will continue to monitor health authority recommendations and will notify participants of any program changes, delays or cancellations
We are offering reserved time slots in our Fitness Room and a select group of indoor fitness classes at a discounted rate. Yoga, HIIT, Cross Train & BollyX just to name a few, watch for more to come as we continue to safely expand our offerings. Fitness in the Park programs continue to run this September as well. All programs are held at Fraser River Heritage Park and Centennial Park. Pre-registration is required for all programs and offerings.
Registration is now open.
Club K.I.D.S (Kids Ideas Developing Skills) is a fun and educational recreation program for children aged 5-11 years (K to Grade 6), conveniently located in their own school. CK offers supervised leisure activities to children in a group setting with their elementary school peers. CK is a licensed facility (through Fraser Health) and due to the time and location of the program, it is often used by many parents as an alternative to daycare, babysitters, or being home alone. Find out more about the Club KIDS program, registration process, safety measures and more.
