Sliding Hills

COVID-19 Update: July 15, 2020

As the Province’s COVID-19 restart plans continue to move forward, the City of Greater Sudbury has been identified as one of the regions permitted to move into Stage 3, as of 12:01 a.m. on Friday, July 17. This stage permits the safe reopening of additional municipal amenities and the majority of private businesses.
The City is reviewing the provincial announcement as it relates to the reopening of arenas. Countryside Arena is the only arena that is typically open during the summer months, and more information on Countryside will be available in the coming days. The City is also reviewing the demand for other arenas, in line with provincial direction, and will share that information when the review is complete. 
Due to the more extensive safety protocols that must be in place, as well as uncertain demand and traditional lower usage during the summer months, further evaluation is required on the potential reopening of fitness centres. More information will be shared in the coming weeks. 
Community centres and field houses will remain closed.

Closed Facilities

All City of Greater Sudbury community and recreation centres, all arenas, fieldhouses, and City-operated pools, fitness centres and museums are closed.

Hall Rentals

All facility rentals are suspended until the end of the Provincial order. Refunds or credits will be issued for cancelled facility rentals. No new rentals will be accepted until after the Provincial order is over.

There’s a new way to register for leisure programs or book a facility. It’s easy to create an account! If you need help getting started, click here for our Frequently Asked Questions.



The French interface of our new registration system is still under development, however it is important that the City goes live with the new system as the existing registration and facility booking system is no longer supported by the vendor. Residents can still receive this service in French by calling 311 to have a French-speaking operator process bookings or registrations. The French interface will be launched in time for the fall/winter registration period.
