On March 1 the Provincial Government announced a move into “Step 2” in the “Path Forward” plan for lifting COVID-19 restrictions.
This includes activities already permitted under Step 1 .

Strathmore Recreation facilities can be contacted by phone or email in order to book the following:

  • One on one or one on one household training time (certified coach or trainer with one client, or one household). Coaches and trainers will be asked to provide proof of their certification at the time of the booking. Regular drop in fees apply.
  • Team practice times for coaches and children under the age of 18 in groups of maximum 10 people (includes participants and coaches). Regular facility booking rates apply.
  • Private Swimming lessons (parented for children under Swim Kids level 4). Regular lesson fees apply.
  • Use for school physical education, including Homeschool participants (2-3 families in an established cohort, or a single family if no cohort is established).
Under the new "Step 2" guidance, walking on the Sobey’s Indoor Track at the Strathmore Motor Products Sport Centre is allowed and will be open Monday, March 8.  Walkers will be required to book in advance and mask wearing will be mandatory.

Open Playgrounds and Outdoor Facilities 

Pathways, Parks and Community Green Spaces

Green spaces allow for physical distancing and are open air spaces. Therefore, they have remained open to the public. Pathways, parks and green spaces require physical distancing conditions to be maintained.

To address community comments about the increased number of people on the paths, and the need to maintain physical distancing, we turned to our partners for help. The Western Irrigation District (WID) has usable walking paths alongside the canal. This adds over ten kilometres of unpaved walking trails across our community for people to enjoy. Trails along the Strathmore Golf Course are open to walking traffic. Please watch for crossing golf carts.
