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 cleaning protocols.  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.

PHASE 3 BC Restart – July 1, 2021 

In Step 3 of the BC Restart plan, organizations are no longer required to maintain a COVID-19 Safety Plan and can instead transition to communicable disease prevention. Some other key takeaways from a recreation facility perspective are the following:

  • Physical distancing markers no longer required
  • Masking – now recommended for those 12 and over and those not double vaccinated
  • No requirement for enhanced cleaning protocols
  • Use of showers, change rooms, lobby space, and other facility amenities can be reopened

In short, all returns to pre-pandemic normal for recreation except seated organized gatherings is 50 per cent of capacity both indoors and outdoors.

Memberships will continue to be frozen while operating under pre-registration 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
