COVID-19 Update

Staff continue to monitor the information and guidelines provided by the Province, Island Health and other authorities to develop plans to reopen Strathcona Gardens facilities and services in a manner that ensures the health and safety of the public and staff.

Reopening will look different
When Strathcona Gardens reopens, your participation will look different. The number of people in facilities will be controlled and monitored through a registration or booking system to maintain physical distancing and adequate cleaning protocols. No walk-ins will be permitted. It will be a gradual process of reopening and it will take time to implement these new protocols to ensure the health and safety of the public and staff, which remains the first priority. Safety plans will be posted for the public with the reopening of services and programs. More information will be made available as specific plans for re-opening are announced; your continued patience is appreciated.

Due to new regulations which limit group sizes, drop-in attendance and enhanced safety protocols, staff at Strathcona Gardens have suspended membership passes and users can choose to apply a credit to their accounts. The credit may be used toward the purchase of  program registrations, and/or facility bookings once programs and services resume operation. If you would prefer to have a refund, please email
