Prior to reopening the Penticton Community Centre sometime in August, City Council has approved the introduction of a flat-fee for single admission to the pool ($6.75) and fitness room ($7.00).
“Moving to a flat-fee admission was necessary to address drastic changes in service levels and capacities, brought about by COVID-19,” said Director of Recreation & Facilities, Bregje Kozak. “Depending on the success of the re-opening and how quickly service levels can be increased, we will make a future recommendation on when the flat-fee can be replaced by our regular age-based admission model.”
The Community Centre has been closed to the public since March 17, 2020. A gradual, phased re-opening of recreational services is required to meet all industry and provincial guidelines, resulting in reduced capacities and ability to generate revenue. The fee amendment and temporary policy change are short-term measures put in place to help support this reopening process.
Additional information regarding the reopening of the Community Centre will become available in the coming weeks. Please visit www.penticton.ca for up–to-date information.
