Recreation Cancellations & Updates

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.
