Parks, Recreation & Culture operations updated to align with new Provincial Orders

The Town of Ladysmith’s Frank Jameson Community Centre remains open to the public for certain recreational programming, however the Fitness Centre will be temporarily closed and all indoor fitness classes are suspended until further notice as we follow the latest Provincial Health Officer (PHO) Orders.

The PHO is also now requiring that patrons 12 years of age or older using the pool facility to provide Proof of Vaccination.

The new Orders go into effect Wednesday, December 22, 2021 at midnight and continue until Tuesday, January 18, 2022. 

As a result of this latest update to public health guidelines, Parks, Recreation & Culture (PRC) is continuing to offer the following programs and services contained within the Winter Activity Guide:

  • Recreation programs (recreation education or classes, including arts, crafts, music and languages and table games);
  • Sports (Pickleball, basketball and soccer);
  • Recreation programs for children and youth including Winter Adventure Zone Day Camps;
  • All aquatic programs.

In an effort to reduce the impact these changes may have on your enjoyment of our facilities, all monthly passes are being extended by a month. No action is required by patrons and the changes will be updated on your RecCowichan account.

The public is also reminded of the FJCC holiday hours that can be found on our website.

PRC staff are also contacting individuals who have upcoming rental booking at the FJCC to update you on the current PHO requirements as it applies to our facilities.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as staff work through new guidelines and protocols for public safety as they updated.

Please see a list below of all programs and classes that will continue to be offered through to January 18, 2022.
