Safe Recreation

Our goal is to provide safe opportunities to stay active while ensuring we adhere to all direction from the Province relating to COVID-19 safety.

Under provincial health orders,  masks are required in all public indoor settings for all people born in 2016 or earlier (5+).

In addition, some services at City recreation facilities require proof of full (two dose) COVID-19 vaccination under the Provincial order including:

Public safety remains a top priority. We can all help prevent the spread of viruses, including COVID-19, and other infectious illnesses with just a few simple habits: 

  • get vaccinated
  • wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
  • cough or sneeze into your elbow, not your hands
  • stay home if you are sick to avoid spreading illness to others
  • wear a mask in indoor public spaces
  • maintain physical distance from others wherever possible and avoid large groups

If you have any questions about safety guidelines in place at City recreation facilities, visit kelowna.ca/prc or call 250-469-8800

Registration tips and improvements

We understand that registering for your desired program is important. We’re currently working to make improvements to ensure registration runs smoothly, especially during the week that registration opens each season. Many of our programs are in high demand which can create a high volume of web and phone traffic during registration week.

We evaluate registration each season and use your feedback to make improvements.

Some of the current improvements in progress include:

  • Improving bandwidth and payment processing for online registration
  • Maximizing the number of phone lines available and staff to assist on registration days
  • Changing registration start time to 7 a.m. to better accommodate work and school schedules
  • Staggering registration start dates for summer camps to better accommodate parents’ ability to plan ahead for summer and reduce demand on the system during registration days
