UPDATED: More City of Trail closures

All shutdowns go into effect indefinitely on March 17

In an ongoing effort to keep all members of the community healthy and safe, and to help reduce the possibility of COVID-19 transmission, the City of Trail will be closing the Trail Aquatic and Leisure Centre, the Trail Riverfront Centre, the Trail Memorial Centre, and the Willi Krause Fieldhouse until further notice.

All shutdowns go into effect on Tuesday, March 17.

The city also announced early Tuesday that public washrooms at Gyro Park are also closed, and city parks and playing field/spaces are closed for event and tournament bookings.

Those sites include: Gyro Park, Butler Park playing field and tennis / pickleball courts; Haley Park Complex; Pople Park; Andy Bilesky Little League Park; the Bocce Sports Facility; Upper Sunningdale Park; Tadanac Park; Lower Sunningdale Park; and Jubilee Park.

At this time, City Hall will remain open to provide essential services to citizens, and the Trail Parks and Recreation administrative staff will remain available by phone at 250-364-0858, and by email at parksadmin@trail.ca.

“We understand these closures will cause inconveniences to many people and we thank you for your understanding and patience,” the city states.

“We also understand you may have many questions and concerns about scheduled programs, user fees and fitness passes. We can assure you that we are working diligently on all aspects of these facility closures, and we will have answers for you very soon.”

An update on the status of Silver City Days will be announced in the coming days.
