Recreation programming will return this fall! We’re doing everything we can to make sure the residents of Golden stay safe and healthy as we reopen our recreations facilities and programs. That means taking extra precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19.
 
Here’s what you need to know about recreation this fall:
 
Facility re-openings and programs
  • The Mount 7 Rec Plex and scheduled programs are set to open in late September.

Facility opening dates are subject to change based on adequate pandemic controls being in place, including those required by user groups. More details on programs and schedules will be rolling out as we get closer to opening each facility.
 
Admission
  • Due to uncertainty and no guarantee of consistent programming, we are putting a pandemic pause on the sale of seasons passes.

COVID-19 precautions
  • Users will be required to pre-register for recreation programs online or by phone. Registering ahead of time lets us safely limit the number of participants in each program, as well as giving us the information we are required to collect for contact tracing.
  • Masks will be required in lobby areas and other areas where physical distancing poses a challenge.
  • There will be a reduction in hours of operation, and the number of programs and participants due to facility capacity guidelines and safety measures consistent with the current provincial health guidelines.

  • Enhanced sanitization measures and longer times between programs and bookings to accommodate cleaning protocols.
  • No access to change rooms or showers in any facilities.
  • Limited number of spectators permitted.
