Sir John Colborne Recreation Centre for Seniors

Now that Halton is in Stage 3 of Ontario's Framework for Reopening the Province in its response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town of Oakville is gradually reopening facilities and introducing modified pre-booked programs.

Not all facilities or amenities are available at this time. When permitted and safe to do so, additional indoor recreation activities will resume once all restrictions can be met.

Fall programs

The Town of Oakville’s new state-of-the-art Oakville Trafalgar Community Centre (OTCC), located on the former site of Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, will open its doors on September 19, 2020 for pre-booked fitness activities and facility tours. OTCC will also offer 8-week programs* for the fall.

The Town of Oakville's other five community centres and Sixteen Mile Sports Centre reopened on Tuesday, September 8 for pre-booked single-visit activities. Some of the offerings include:

Monthly fitness and general activity memberships with a September 8 start date are now available for purchase. Call 905-815-2000 for details.

Registration for fall programs

*We are offering shortened 9-week fall sessions of some of our programs, scheduled to start after Thanksgiving.

The town has launched Programs Oakville, a new web application that offers a more convenient and user-friendly program search tool for registration.

Registration for residents will open at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, September 16.

An active Senior Services membership is not required to register for September and October programs.

We’re now offering some of your favourite programs at Sir John Colborne Seniors Centre.

Seniors Services members are invited to take part in physically distanced exercise classes in either the parking lot or on the lawn pending activity type.

We are also introducing snooker and a few indoor programs on a limited basis in September.

As we become more comfortable getting active under the new health guidelines, we will look for opportunities to safely expand programming.

Health and Safety

  • Please arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to the start of your program to allow for a COVID-19 health screening.
  • All participants will be required to pass a screening checklist on the day of your program before proceeding to your activity area.
