Due to the extreme heat and its potential impact on staff, volunteers, and the public, Canada Day festivities will be postponed this Sunday July 1. Here is the official announcement from the city.
It is our hope to reschedule all activities to another date this summer. We believe we are doing the responsible thing for residents and staff and we will choose a date where more people will come out and enjoy the festivities.
How else are we preparing for the heat wave?
The library will be open from 10 am to 6 pm on Sunday, and 10 am to 10 pm on Monday. We are looking into extending the library hours from 10 am to 10 pm on Sunday. The library will be showing movies Saturday, Monday, and we will try for Sunday as well.
The ACC is open Sunday from 8 am to 9:45 pm, and Monday from 6 am to 11 pm.
The outdoor pool is open from 10 am to 8 pm both days.
The gym will be open for "open-play" activities.
All splash pads are functioning, and all bathrooms in chalets are open and functional except Fyon Park (due to vandalism).
This is the first time I can remember Canada Day being called off for something other than rain.
