With summer camps, outdoor fitness classes, arena bookings and community school rentals well underway, the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is now excited to welcome pass holders back to Meadow Park Sports Centre (MPSC) starting Monday, August 17, 2020. Appropriate health and safety precautions and protocols have been strategically planned and implemented to keep staff, customers and the community safe as recreation services are reintroduced.

This planned restoration of services is deliberately built to be flexible and allow for the scaling of services and programs to meet the changing direction from health authorities. In this regard, targeted opening dates may need to be modified.
