Fitness Centre, Pool and Rink Gradual Return of Services
Britannia Community Services Centre has been working towards a strategic recovery of services and we are happy to announce a gradual return of priority programs and services at the Centre.
Our Pool and Fitness Centre re-opens on September 14, 2020 for use by appointment only. Appointments can be booked in advance online at recreation.vancouver.ca or by phone at 604.718.5800 (1). Appointments are first-come, first-served. Please note: Only 20% of appointments will be reserved for drop-ins. If you would like to ensure access, please book in advance. Please note: Our saunas, steam room, and hot tub are closed at this time.
There will be one line-up for preregistered fitness centre patrons at the upper level entrance and another line-up for preregistered pool patrons at the lower level main entrance. There will be a separate pool and fitness centre drop-in line at the lower level main entrance. We will have an ambassador directing patrons at the facility.
Our Rink re-opens on September 21, 2020 for permit holders only. Plans to expand access to the general public are underway and will be offered once the required health and safety precautions are in place.
We will also be offering some in-person indoor, outdoor and online recreation programs starting in late September. At this time, we are focusing on priority programs for seniors, children and youth, with limited adult programming. Registration opens on September 15, 2020 at 10:00am online or over the phone at 604.718.5800 (1). More programs may be added after registration opens.
