Due to the provincewide shutdown declared on April 1, Allandale Recreation Centre, Holly Community Centre, East Bayfield Community Centre, Eastview Arena and Sadlon Arena are closed to the public (other than the immunization clinic at Holly Community Centre, which is open by appointment only). The shutdown was effective and will remain in effect for at least four weeks across Ontario. There are no in-person programs/activity offerings, but virtual program offerings continue.

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.
