The Vancouver Park Board is set to reopen 50 facilities in the next few weeks
With summer running out we’re also losing summer activities! Luckily, the Vancouver Park Board is reopening over 50 facilities across the city over the next 6 weeks. We’re talking everything from community centres to indoor pools, so let’s check it out!
The first things coming down the pipe are community centres. On Tuesday, September 8th, 24 of them will be reopened around Vancouver. And for those curious, this reopening includes services like child care.
Over the next 6 weeks, the Park Board will reopen over 50 facilities including child care and priority programs for seniors and youth, community centres, indoor pools, arenas, and fitness centres. For specific dates and locations, check out https://t.co/d5Xa9I14ZZ pic.twitter.com/rpT4XU9Tlv

Then indoor pools and fitness centres are scheduled to reopen the week after. That list has Kerrisdale, Britannia, Hillcrest, and the Vancouver Aquatic Centre on it. But, swimmers will need to schedule swimming times, and saunas and steam rooms will remain closed.
Finally, pretty much the rest of the indoor pools and fitness centres will reopen in mid-October. If you feel like using these public spaces, make sure you respect physical distancing and public health guidelines while you’re there. That’s how they stay open, after all!
