The new community centre is open! Your TCRA directors got a guided tour today. The place is beautiful and, most gratifying, kids were already playing on the swings in the playground outside! The pool is not yet open - there is work still to be done, but it should be finished by the beginning of November. The rest is open for use. Because of the COVID-19 emergency, there are special procedures for using the facilities. They are complicated. Only monthly memberships are available at present, and you have to phone 905-815-2000 for membership inquiries or purchase. Click here for the Fitness Centres page on the Town website, and expand the "Admission, membership and schedule information" drop-down menu for details.
The new community centre is almost ready! Here's what our Ward 3 Councillors Janet Haslett-Theall and Dave Gittings say in their most recent newsletter ..
" Watch for a special edition e blast in a couple of weeks on the opening of the Oakville Trafalgar Community Centre. The pool liners have arrived from the United States and commissioning the pools may delay the pool opening but the remainder of the facility is being prepped for opening. Stay tuned for details on how to book an appointment and the specific offerings they will provide."

The new community centre and adjoining park, under construction on Reynolds near MacDonald, is growing apace. It is on schedule for opening in the Fall 2020. Council has officially named it the Oakville Trafalgar Community Centre. Until recently it had been referred to as the Southeast Community Centre. The new name recognizes the legacy of the former Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital which sat on this site and which played such an important role in our community. The new Centre will include a 25m pool, small warm-water pool, fitness centre, double gym, running track and multi-purpose rooms. Learn more here.
