What is Open & Closed

Welcoming the community back.

North Vancouver Recreation & Culture (NVRC) is pleased to have begun resuming services with the partial re-opening of select facilities.  Staff have been working hard developing and implementing new health and safety measures to ensure community members and employees can all stay safe as we slowly return to providing the recreation and culture progrmas and services our community values.

Planning for Fall Underway

NVRC looks forward to opening more facilities and expanding services for North Vancouver residents in early fall including aquatic spaces and arenas and offering more registered programs and facility rentals.

Our team is working hard to assess demand for programs, determine the financial viability of providing services within the new regulations and plan for the return and retraining of our valued staff.

Restarting services in a few facilities in August is allowing us to pilot and test our new systems and procedures which include limiting the number of people in spaces to ensure physical distancing, requiring all activities to be registered (no drop-ins) and enhanced cleaning and safety protocols.

We understand how much our community members want to get back to regular activities.  Our goal is to return to serving the community more fully as quickly and as safely as is feasible. We are committed to keeping you updated on our planning and hope to announce additional services soon.  Please continue to visit our website  for updates.
