Programs in the Parks 

The Provincial Health Officer and the Minister of Health have emphasized the importance of getting people outdoors and recreating again in a controlled and safe manner – we agree.

Squamish Recreation Services is taking a cautious and deliberate approach to creating safe community programs keeping in line with Vancouver Coastal Health, WorkSafe BC and the Provincial Ministry of Health guidelines. We ask that you help us by self-moderating you and your family’s physical distancing and not to attend if you or your child are sick.

Attendance of the programs is at the discretion of your own comfort level. We respect your decision to leave if needed.

  • Please do not arrive any earlier than 15 minutes before session and please leave promptly after.
  • Program runs for 30 minutes, rain or shine!
  • Programming may change due to participant numbers.
