This page contains up-to-date information re COVID-19 impacts on recreation services. The City regularly consults with, and follows advice from, the
Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit.
Allandale Recreation Centre,
Holly Community Centre,
East Bayfield Community Centre,
Eastview Arena and
Sadlon Arena are closed until further notice as part of the provincewide shutdown. Other community centres remain closed.
Select outdoor rinks are open, with limitations. Please visit

Virtual fitness classes are open to all users with play.barrie.ca accounts (new users can create an account). For safety and security reasons, all participants are required to have a Zoom account to access virtual fitness classes. See full details about virtual fitness classes.
During the period when recreation facilities are closed, monthly payments for all recreation memberships (recPASS) have been paused until centres re-open and in-person programming begins. Membership expiry dates will be extended by the number of days equal to the period of closure. RecPASS members can use their membership to access virtual programming, free of charge. The City is also accepting new recreation accounts. Sign up for an account at
Refunds will be credited to your recreation account.
Yes. Call a recreation centre to purchase a membership. Please note, only credit card is accepted for membership payment at this time. Your pass will give you access to our virtual programs. Once centres are able to reopen, you will need to come into a centre to fully activate your pass and access in-person programming.
Members can cancel their existing fitness memberships by emailing email@example.com or by calling a
local recreation centre.
Our priorities are safety and communication. Sometimes unexpected events necessitate that a program or service must be moved, postponed or cancelled outright. In those circumstances we will post the relevant information as soon as it is available. Every effort will be made to makeup the affected missed classes.
On inclement weather days, decisions about program cancellations and outdoor sports fields closures will be made by 3:00 p.m. and the information posted. We endeavor to list all current emergency or unexpected cancellations or closures for City of Barrie recreation programs, events, skating and public swimming times as well as recreation facility and outdoor sports field closures. However, we cannot guarantee that all cancellations and closures will be listed here. All City of Barrie programming may be subject to change. Please use your own best judgment to assess local road conditions before venturing out.
For more information, please contact the Inclement Weather Hotline at (705) 739-4215 email at
