Facilities and Services Updates


Updated July 31:
 

The District of Squamish is working to re-open facilities, recreation amenities in line with the health and safety protocols outlined in the BC Restart Plan. In all cases, the conditions of opening facilities to the public is contingent upon providing a safe environment for staff and patrons in line with the Province’s requirements and guidelines, especially as they pertain to limiting gatherings to less than 50 people, and the continued requirement to physically distance.

As Recreation staff are working to bring safe and fun programs to the community for the summer, we will update residents shortly on what fall programs will look like, as well as indoor amenities including the pool and rink. Summer Camp registration is now open. Camps will be held outside and physical distancing will be encouraged at all times. 

Please continue to check back here for the latest facilities and services updates.
