Several fitness activities and recreation programs set to resume at Recreation Complex

A number of fitness activities and recreation programs are resuming this week after all programs at the Port Moody Recreation Complex were cancelled November 9, 2020 due to provincial health restrictions related to COVID-19. 

Registered fitness programs and recreation activities that are re-starting include:

  • low-intensity fitness programs such as yoga, Zumba, and barre (week of November 23)
  • skating lessons (week of November 23)
  • outdoor boot camp (November 25, 2020)
  • programs for school-age children (week of November 30, 2020) 

These changes are in response to revised orders issued by the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) on November 19, 2020. High-intensity fitness activities such as spin classes are not permitted under the orders. Sport competitions, games, and practices are allowed but, by order of the PHO, no spectators are permitted. 

The Recreation Complex (300 Ioco Road) was closed on November 9 but re-opened November 16, 2020 for ice arena user groups, weight room use and personal training services, and Early Learners Outdoor Playschool. 

In-person service at City Hall (100 Newport Drive) will remain suspended until December 7, 2020. However, City staff continue to deliver services and are readily available by email or phone to assist the public. As well, a number of services are available online. Please visit to find information, pay bills, apply for a business licence, or submit a permit application online. 

Council meetings will continue to be held electronically and live-streamed at Council Chambers will be open to the public during Council meetings in case residents wish to attend in person. 

Your safety, and the safety of our employees, is our top priority. Special measures are in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our facilities including extra cleaning of indoor areas.

We all need to do our part to help keep everyone safe. Please note you must:

  • complete a COVID-19 self-screening health check before entering a civic facility;
  • wear a face mask (masks are now required in all public indoor settings, including recreation centres, by order of the provincial government);
  • stay two metres (six feet) from anyone who is not a member of your household; and
  • wash or sanitize hands frequently. 

The City has taken a number of steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 while working to maintain core services. We’re continuously monitoring information about COVID-19 coming from public health authorities, and will make decisions about City services, programs, and facilities with the health and safety of our residents and our employees in mind.
