For anyone wanting to access services at the Trail Aquatic and Leisure Centre, pre-registration for the fitness centre and pools will continue until further notice.

Fitness Centre users and registrants in fitness programs will require verification of vaccination.

The Trail Memorial Centre will remain closed to the general public and will only be available to third-party users and their activities.
