Welcome to West Shore Parks & Recreation

WSPR-ADVENTurous-Web Teaser-01WSPR_events_2020-Summer Guide

WSPR_events_2020-COVIDWSPR is currently closed and all programs are cancelled until further notice.

West Shore Parks & Recreation is committed to the health and well-being of our community.  Therefore, we have taken proactive measures to close facilities and put a hold on programming during this time.

For ongoing updates regarding programs, services, and facility operations, please visit this page regularly.

SWIMMING LESSONS

All swimming lessons have been cancelled until the end of April.

Credits/Refunds

Families will be credited for remaining classes in the session, and will be advised by email once the credit has been applied to their PerfectMind accounts.  Alternatively, upon receiving this email, families may contact reception at 250-478-8384 to request a refund. Due to the large volume of programs impacted, all lesson cancellations will be processed over the next week.

Progress Reports

Due to the extraordinary circumstances, report cards will not be issued for in-progress lessons. Rather, each participant’s progress as of the last lesson they attended is being gathered from instructors digitally. Each participant’s status (complete, or incomplete) will be available by calling reception one week prior to registration opening for the next session of swimming lessons. 

Future Programs and Registration

At this time, we cannot provide an anticipated date as to when swimming lessons may resume. Please check our website regularly for updates, including when registration will open for future programs.

CREDITS FOR OTHER CANCELLED PROGRAMS

Credits will be issued to anyone who has registered for activities affected by these closures. WSPRS staff will automatically apply the appropriate credit to your PerfectMind registration account. There is no need to contact us to cancel.

PASSES

All dated passes (1 month, 3 month, Annual, Regional) will be extended by the closure length. *Monthly payments continue for passes on scheduled payments.

RENTALS

All rentals scheduled until the end of May have been cancelled.  The bookings department will be in contact to issue a credit or refund.  We will continue to update the status of any previously booked rental two weeks prior to the date of the booking.  The bookings department will be in touch if your booking needs to be cancelled due to the continued closure of the facility.  In the hopes that our current situation resolves quickly, we will be accepting requests for future bookings.  Please feel free to send in the Request for Use form via the email submit buttons on the form and we will check availability of space for the coming months.

 

 

For any questions or concerns, please email reception@westshorerecreation.ca

We appreciate your ongoing patience and understanding as we take measures to keep everyone safe.

For our latest public notice, please see the attached letter.

New York State Recreation & Park Society

The
New York State Recreation and Park Society (NYSRPS) headquartered in
the beautiful Spa State Park is the leading professional membership
organization dedicated to promoting quality recreation, parks
opportunities, and engagement for all citizens of New York State through
education and training for local, county, state and federal recreation
and park providers.

wide range of programs and services to work more effectively within the
communities they serve. Keeping our park and recreation professionals
engaged with the best practices to serve their communities is our top
priority.

SURVEY RESULTS ARE IN!

Now available for view are the NYSRPS COVID-19 Recreation and Parks Surveys.

Thank you all very much who participated in the COVID-19 survey. 101 surveys were returned (thank you!) and we hope the information shared helps you see how your department is operating in relation to others in your region and state overall.

*Please note the PDF format does not show text replies (like the “other” option) so an Excel file is given, as well, to view these responses.

While these surveys are revealing, we recommend you turn to your fellow park and recreation departments locally to connect. We encourage all especially now to make use of the Professionals Engage page. Share your questions and comments on the Professional Forum and please upload important documents you might like to share with others. It was shown some departments have Continued Operations Plans in place while others do not. This would be a terrific example of a resource to share. We hope this all provides you greater connection and a net of support. We are all in this together~ NYSRPS
