Park Closures

As Town facilities and select park amenities remain closed and services/programs are disrupted, it will take time to reopen after any provincial announcements are made. We must do our due diligence, as many of these re-openings will require new safety protocols for users and staff, along with time to perform the necessary maintenance to open park amenities and Town facilities. Please review the table below for an up to date listing of parks and amenities that are open and those that remain closed.

Recreation

Summer Camps

Following the Ontario Government and public health directives, Milton is cancelling all Town-run summer camp programs. The health and safety of staff and participants is paramount and based on a variety of factors, the Town of Milton is not in a position to run our regularly scheduled summer camp programs this year.  As restrictions from the Province and Public Health are lifted, the Town may implement a redesigned or modified summer camp program where possible. If so, these programs will be advertised to the community.

Virtual Recreation

The Town of Milton Recreation Team is committed to maintaining the health and wellness of residents, more than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are offering virtual programming to  help individuals and families manage their physical and mental health while social and physical distancing.
