Provincial Roadmap to Reopen
This page contains up-to-date information about closures impacting recreation services, as well as
closures and cancellations unrelated to COVID-19.
The City regularly consults with, and follows advice from, the
Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit.
The City of Barrie is complying with the provincial regulations for proof of vaccination (two doses) along with valid ID. For more information visit barrie.ca/ProofOfVaccine.
Drop-in activities and virtual programs are available for registration via play.barrie.ca at Holly Community Centre (HCC), East Bayfield Community Centre (EBCC) and Allandale Recreation Centre (ARC). Pre-registration and
COVID-19 screening is required.
We’ve got something for everyone! Register to participate in your favourites like dance, fitness classes, Spanish lessons, and much more! Starting September 20th, you can also add fall programs to your “Wish List” so you can quickly find your desired classes when registration opens. Browse programs via play.barrie.ca.
The below closures or program cancellations may be due to weather, instructor availability, facility issue, or other reason.
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
