Sir John Colborne Recreation Centre for Seniors

As we move from the Yellow-Protect level to the Red-Control level in response to rising COVID-19 cases, Town of Oakville recreation facilities remain open with new health and safety measures.

The Town of Oakville continues its commitment to health and safety with altered programs and services, and is in regular contact with public health authorities to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

With Premier Ford’s announcement on Friday, November 13, we are moving into the Red-Control level of the provincial COVID-19 Response Framework.

The following changes will be in effect at all town-operated recreation facilities beginning Monday, November 16:

  • Access to recreation facilities is limited to 90 minutes.
  • Team sport programming such as basketball, volleyball, pickleball and hockey has been suspended.
  • Drop-in programs for non-team sports such as badminton and pickleball continue with limited capacities.
  • Spectators are not permitted.

Not all facilities or amenities are available at this time. If you don’t see your favourite program now, check back regularly. Activities are being added as safety measures can be put in place. Visit our Programs FAQs page.

Monthly fitness and general activity memberships are now available for purchase. Call 905-815-2000 for details.

Registration for fall programs

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

An active Senior Services membership is not required to register for programs at this time.

Please be considerate of your fellow members when registering. Spaces are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Register through your IRIS Registration Account using your PIN and ID. Members without internet access or those with registration inquiries can call 905-815-2000 and a staff member will assist you.

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.
  • Please wear a mask to the screening check point and bring any supplies required such as a pre-filled water bottle, towel, mat (no mats will be provided), sunscreen, etc.

Participants are reminded to follow proper health precautions, including the use of face coverings, use of hand sanitizer, and practicing physical distancing.

There will be limited access to our washroom facilities and encourage members to avoid if possible.


Parking is available in the main lot on Old Lakeshore Road. The Third line parking lot will be closed for the safety of fitness participants. Please observe the 6 feet/2 metre physical distancing markings on the pavement and be mindful of people around you. Be patient, be kind and remember we are doing our best given our new guidelines.
