COVID19 – City announces more plans for reopening some facilities and fields

The City of Kamloops is continuing to implement its gradual reopening plan, as safety plans and procedures are put in place.

Starting next week, residents will begin to see expanded hours and services at the TCC followed by further reopenings throughout the month as follows:

June 15: Expanded Hours and Services at the TCC
TCC Fieldhouse hours will expand to 6:30 a.m.–6:30 p.m., Monday–Saturday. Change rooms will not be available, and a limited number of lockers will be available (bring your own lock), so guests are encouraged to come prepared to workout.
TCC guests will have expanded fitness opportunities with the return of the EZ Line exercise equipment adjacent to the indoor track and new fitness stations on north court.
Drop-in basketball will resume with modifications. Players must bring their own balls, one ball per person (no sharing), and one-on-one or scrimmages will not be permitted.
Daily drop-in track passes are $5, and monthly track-only passes are available for $20. The City is requesting payment via debit or credit only.

Splash parks at Riverside Park, Albert McGowan, McDonald Park, and Westsyde Centennial Park will reopen 10 a.m.–8 p.m. daily.

June 29: Additional Recreation Facilities and Fields Opening
The Athlete Performance Centre (APC) at the TCC will open. Change rooms will not be not available, and a limited number of lockers will be available (bring your own lock), so guests are encouraged to come prepared to workout. Daily drop-in track passes are $5, and monthly Track + APC passes are available for $29. The City is requesting payment via debit or credit only.
The City will open select sports fields for booking starting June 29, 2020, as provincial and local sport organizations develop safety plans. The NHL ice sheet at McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre will also be available for booking. Visit Kamloops.ca/BookNow for booking information.

In addition to these openings, recreation staff are developing modified sport and fitness programs in accordance with provincial guidelines. Plans are also underway for reopening other fitness amenities and pools. More details on these openings will be released as they become available.

Anyone displaying obvious flu-like symptoms may be asked to leave City parks or facilities.
