My Nanaimo, 

In response to the Provincial Heath announcement yesterday, effective immediately:
  • all City of Nanaimo recreation facility indoor adult team sports will be paused, until further notice.
  • all fitness related programs that have already been paused, will continue to be on hold until further notice.
Any other decisions will be made after the revised Provincial Health Order, and revised viaSport Guidelines, have been posted.

We appreciate your patience and support as we deal with this ever-changing landscape.

My Nanaimo, 

Being active all year is an important factor in staying healthy, which is why we continue to pivot and follow the rapidly changing Provincial Health Order updates to keep everyone safe. We have a variety of programming options available for all ages and are reviewing revisions to Public Health Orders as we receive them.
In the meantime, we ask for your continued patience and understanding as we navigate an ever-changing landscape.
Your Parks, Recreation and Culture Team
