After many years of waiting, we are delighted that the Oakville Trafalgar Community Centre will be opening this fall.  Due to Covid restrictions, it will be a soft opening, with the full menu of programming getting phased in over several weeks, and offerings will be  subject to change to reflect any evolving public health considerations.  Construction update can be found here while more programming detail will be available in September.   

 
The new facility will open with pre-booked drop-in activities in the pool, fitness area, gymnasium and multipurpose room.  Pre-registered multi session programs will be introduced later in the fall. During the initial phase of drop-in single session programs, staff will engage with the community through a variety of in-person and outreach initiatives to gauge community interest and demand for specific programs.
