The safety of the public and our staff is paramount in our plans for providing the use of our facility at this time. The re-opening of the Nick Smith Centre will see the facility operate in four zones – Community Pool, Community Hall, Bert Hall Arena and Glenn Arthur Arena. Users will use different entry and exit points unique for each zone of the facility, never crossing from one zone into another.
The pool will return to a more normal schedule that will see additional programming including swimming lessons and extending the hours of operations starting October 5th. We are currently operating with one arena open for use – the Bert Hall Arena – with the Glenn Arthur Arena to open at a later day. We continue to consult with the Renfrew County Health Unit on their recommendations for moving into further openings and additional program offerings.
All pool programming, ice and community hall rentals must be registered for in advance through the online portal or by calling the office at 613-623-7301. Drop-ins will not be permitted.
As per the Renfrew County Health Unit’s recommendations, many changes have been put in place to ensure the safety of our staff and users. Residents are asked to review all information on facility access and protocols before their visit (see below):
