A Message from Ann Pappert, Director of Community Services I’m pleased to welcome you to the spring/summer edition of the Guelph Community Guide, Guelph’s official guide to City recreation, leisure and culture programming. As always, this edition is chock full of sports, culture and leisure opportunities for you and your family. If you’re familiar with the City’s programs, welcome back – we’ve got all of your spring and summer favourites along with some exciting new offerings. If you’ve never taken a class or joined a group we hope this year you’ll join the thousands of residents who take part in the City of Guelph’s fun, affordable programs. Recreation, parks and cultural programming are important to us, and we know they mean something to you too. So much is clear from the number of people who have taken part in our Master Planning process and south end study so far. Both the Recreation, Parks & Culture Strategic Master Plan and the Component Study for a new south end centre are intended to guide recreation, parks and culture through the next 10 years. Thank you to everyone who attended open houses; took part in public forums; participated in stakeholder sessions; and responded to our random public opinion survey. Your input will help shape the future of recreation, parks, and culture in Guelph for the coming decade. I invite you to visit guelph.ca to learn about other opportunities to be involved. In the meantime, all the best for an active and enjoyable spring and summer! Sincerely,

Ann Pappert Director, Community Services


Happy Spring Everyone! Now that Spring has sprung, families across our community are putting away the snow shovels and toboggans for another year, and bringing out the gardening tools and tennis racquets. It’s the perfect time to take advantage of the many and varied recreation and fitness opportunities that the City offers. A connected community Staying active is not only good for our health - it helps build a well-connected community where people meet and get to know each other, whether on the soccer field, at the pool, in music or art class, or at the local library. Activities for all ages This Community Guide offers hundreds of activities that provide fun and engaging alternatives to the television, video games and the computer. There are programs for children of all ages, where kids learn new skills, meet new friends, and create lasting memories. For adults, there are plenty of options to rekindle an old interest or start a new one, as well as a range of fitness opportunities to help you meet your goals. Seniors today are more healthy and active than ever before. If you are a senior who would like to meet new people, take part in great activities, and access supports for health and wellness, please take a look at the many great services and programs in the Seniors section of this Guide. This Spring, I invite you to get out and take advantage of all that our city has to offer!

Karen Farbridge Mayor

West End Community Centre – Viewing gallery, observation windows in the main corridor

Aquatics

Viewing classes from the pool deck is not available at Centennial Pool and West End Community Centre. Instructors, assistant instructors and volunteers All classes will be taught by a fully certified instructor (Red Cross or the Life Saving Society). Our instructors have spent over 200 hours taking courses and volunteering in aquatic instructional programs in preparation to teach your children. Two or three assistant instructors are assigned to programs each evening. They are our future instructors and have spent over 100 hours preparing to assist with classes through courses and volunteering. The assistant instructors are assigned to classes that the supervisor feels would most benefit from their involvement. Volunteers also help with our programs. The volunteers are part of either the Advanced Leadership Program or volunteer program and are training to become a future instructor. Questions or concerns? A pool deck supervisor is on duty at all times during our program lessons. They are the lesson experts and are available to answer your questions and assist with any concerns. If you have a concern, speak with the Deck Supervisor immediately; please don’t wait until the last class. Your feedback is very important. It helps us to provide quality programs and successful aquatic experiences. Pool temperatures o

Progress evaluation All participants in swimming lessons are evaluated on an on-going basis throughout the session. Candidates who complete all of the required skills will receive a sticker or badge.

If you miss the last lesson, you may pick up your progress report at Victor Davis Pool or West End Community Centre or Centennial Pool during operating hours. Inclement weather Swimming lessons and programs will only be cancelled when Guelph Transit buses are taken off the roads for safety reasons, as reported by radio station 106.1 FM. Cancelled classes We will be cancelling classes with low enrolment approximately one week prior to the start date. Swimming attire Participants should wear a gender appropriate bathing suit that is suitable for a public family environment. Cut–offs and street wear is not acceptable. Participants unable to wear swimwear may wear a clean, tight fitting t–shirt and shorts. Participants who do not have control of their bladder and/or bowels must wear a garment that restricts leakage around the legs and waist from going into the pool.

Adapted aquatic lessons This swimming program is designed for children with physical, developmental or communication disabilities who require specialized instruction in order to progress in their swimming skills. Each child will receive individual assistance from a trained swim instructor and volunteers. Registration is dependent on volunteer availability.

Centennial Pool, Victor Davis Pool and WECC are accessible. Victor Davis has change rooms with an entrance located adjacent to the parking lot that leads directly onto the pool deck. Participants may also choose to use our “easy steps” to enter on their own. Our trained staffs are able to assist participants at all three pools into the water with the use of the pool chair lift. Participants must be able to transfer independently from a wheelchair to our lift.

Our warm teaching pool at Victor Davis is ideal for any child who performs better in a warmer environment. The shallow depth of this pool also encourages more active participation.

One–to–one private swimming lessons are available during the day and evening programs. This individual attention will allow the instructor to adapt the program to meet the special needs of each participant. The fee for this program is $94.52 for nine thirty–minute sessions. Please Note: In order to register for private special needs swimming lessons, applicants must have a PAL card. PAL& LAC application forms are available at each community centre, from the Community Services Office or by calling 519–837–5625. The Disability Resource Coordinator will review completed application forms and a PAL or LAC card will be issued upon approval.

The West End Community Centre has a warm therapy and a shallow leisure pool that is also conducive to active participation. Centennial Pool offers a quiet environment for individuals who participate better with less environmental distractions. A quiet swim is offered at Victor Davis Pool on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and at 2 to 3:30 p.m., and Fridays from 2 to 3:30 p.m. The West End Community Centre has a swim on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Volunteers or caregivers are admitted free with a PAL card.

Drop-in Lessons West End Community Centre Develop your water skills at times that suit your schedule on a drop-in basis for only $3.35 per class! Come early to ensure you get a spot. No final written evaluations. Registration starts half an hour before, up until the last five minutes before each class begins. Please note classes may be cancelled for school rentals. Swim to Survive Are you a basic swimmer? Come and learn the skills necessary for a sudden fall into the water and survival as outlined by the Life Saving Society. Sat Apr 18 – Jun 13, 2009 12:30 – 1 p.m. R$3.35 Drop in Sat, Apr 18 - Jun 13, 2009 12:30 - 1 p.m. R$ 3:35

Family Lessons Register all of your children’s aquatic lessons at one convenient time! Family lessons are programmed by their time rather than by the level. This allows families to attend their lessons at the same time. Please bring your child’s most recent progress report to the first lesson. If your child doesn’t have a previous report or if you’re unsure of their level, they will be screened and assigned to the appropriate level during the first lesson. Your child will be placed in a class with other children of the same ability and age. Each class may include two or three different swimming levels. Parent participation is not required. These classes offer low student to instructor ratios. All skill evaluations will be on-going throughout the session. Note - Whale participants will be taught with school age children. To help improve our program, and provide a better teaching experience for your child, please provide their child’s swimming level when registering for family lessons. Family lesson registration will not be available on the automated phone system (IVR).

Registration starts Monday, March 30. Register at 519-837-5699 or regexpress.guelph.ca.

Family Lessons Register all of your children’s aquatic lessons at one convenient time! Family lessons are programmed by their time rather than by the level. This allows families to attend their lessons at the same time. Please bring your child’s most recent progress report to the first lesson. If your child doesn’t have a previous report or if you’re unsure of their level, they will be screened and assigned to the appropriate level during the first lesson. Your child will be placed in a class with other children of the same ability and age. Each class may include two or three different swimming levels. Parent participation is not required. These classes offer low student to instructor ratios. All skill evaluations will be on-going throughout the session. Note - Each class may include 2-3 different swimming Swim Kids. To help improve our program, and provide a better teaching experience for your child, please provide their child’s swimming level when registering for family lessons. Family lesson registration will not be available on the automated phone system (IVR).

Camps

This summer, join us for fun! Our camps and programs are available for all ages and interests. Kids can spend the day splashing in the pool or crashing through the woods. Youth and teens can learn the responsibility of leading and planning – all in an engaging atmosphere. Find out about all the great activities there are to do this summer!

Camps

About our Camps Our programming philosophy We believe that recreation and sport programs are an important contribution to healthy development. The City of Guelph is committed to providing a positive, caring environment where children of all ages and abilities can participate in fun-filled programs that promote physical activity, positive self-esteem, friendships, creativity and learning through play. All of our summer camp program locations are fully accessible to meet the needs of all our participants. Our staff Camp Team Leaders and Counsellors are selected based on their enthusiasm, energy, experience working with children, knowledge of child development, and awareness of adapting programs for individuals with special needs. All camp employees participate in an extensive pre-camp training program and have been certified in Standard First Aid and CPR and the High Five Principles of Healthy Child Development. Code of conduct We believe that a safe and inviting camp environment is essential for optimum social, emotional, intellectual and physical growth. To achieve this everyone must demonstrate responsibility towards self, others, the environment and the community. Within all City of Guelph programs, appropriate participant behaviour is expected. All staff, volunteers and participants are expected to be respectful, cooperative, involved and positive. Please talk to your child about these expectations prior to their camp start date to help promote a truly exceptional camp experience. Children who demonstrate inappropriate behaviour may be asked to leave the camp and no refund will be issued.

One2One support One2One support may be available for a maximum of two weeks per child. At the conclusion of those two weeks, the child must attend camp with their own support person for any additional time they will spend at camp. Provision of support for children is limited and must be arranged in advance. Requests for assistance will be processed on a first come, first served basis. Every effort will be made to find appropriate support for each participant, however we cannot guarantee that a suitable volunteer will be found. One2One volunteers cannot be responsible for toileting or diapering of camp participants. Be sure to indicate on the Registration Form that your child requires One2One support. Please refer to the Resource Services for People with Disabilities section of this guide for more information. Special Services at Home Worker (SSAHW) If you are sending your child to a City of Guelph camp with their SSAHW fully participating in the program, you are eligible for a discount of 50% off the camp registration fee. At the time of registration, please let us know that a SSAHW worker will be attending. Trips Swim and Sherwood Forest camps go on an off-site trip once per week (with the exception of the Sleepout week at Sherwood Forest Camp). All trips listed are subject to change without notice. More trip information is available in the weekly Camp Newsletter, which parents will receive on the first day of camp. Swimming Some camps offer swimming. If the camper does not pass the City of Guelph swim test, they may be required to wear a life jacket. Volunteer with us Many volunteers are required to maintain the City’s low trip and swim ratios. If you are interested in volunteering contact the Volunteer Facilitator at 519-822-1260 x 2707.

Fees listed are for Guelph residents. Non-residents please add $7.50 for children/7.88 for adults. Please add GST to all youth(14+yrs) /adult program fees.

Each program encourages children to build friendships and learn about the world. If your preschool aged child is attending a program without a caregiver, he/she must be toilet-trained, call Alana or Sarah at 519-837-5657 if you have any questions. Please remember to send a healthy snack with them each week. Some programs offer more than one session, you can register one at a time or both together.

Parks and Trails Guelph features over 1,000 hectares of parks and open spaces including over 43 kilometres of trails and paths. We invite you to take some time to explore all of these areas throughout the city. Your co-operation is requested to ensure that our parks and open spaces are maintained and safe for the enjoyment of everyone. Many of our parks are supported by additional features including play structures, picnic shelters or gazebos, washroom facilities, tennis courts, potential community ice rinks, full or half basketball courts, or beach volleyball courts. Riverside Park Riverside Park is a perfect location to host seasonable events. The Park offers the following: Floral Clock and Rock Gardens; a fully accessible children’s playground; an outdoor concert shell; an antique carousel; pedal boats; miniature train; horseshoe pits; a giant chess/ checker game; a sand beach area; trails along the river front; 3 baseball diamonds; a scaled model of the first house built in Guelph by John Galt; and a large and small picnic shelter. The Floral Clock and Gardens are meticulously maintained and open daily for your enjoyment. Thousands of interesting plants provide beauty and colour year round. These gardens are perfect for wedding photographs, however, note that the gardens cannot be reserved. Please be courteous of other wedding parties and other members of the public who maybe sharing the space with you. For detailed information on the parks in your neighbourhood and their features visit the City’s website at guelph.ca > living > parks & trails > parks

Dogs may be off leash on unoccupied sports fields from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. (May 1 to September 14) and from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. (September 15 to April 30) Motorized vehicles other than authorized vehicles are prohibited in parks. This includes trail bikes, mopeds, motorcycles and snow mobiles. Parking on earth or grass surfaces within City parks is prohibited – any vehicles found in violation will be ticketed. For the safety of everyone, activities such as golf and archery are not permitted in City parks. Alcoholic beverages are not permitted in City parks.

Pesticide Use The City of Guelph’s Pesticide By-law 2007-18308 comes into effect April 1, 2008 and is available for viewing on the City’s website at guelph.ca. For 2008, the bylaw will apply to commercial applicators of pesticides. Residents can still apply pesticides on their lawns (if they choose) until April 2009 when the bylaw comes into full effect. Subject to the noted bylaw exceptions, the application of pesticides is permissible within the boundaries of the City of Guelph. The City does not recognize, certify or recommend commercial companies that apply pesticides. The City promotes cultural practices as part of a landscape maintenance program and residents are encouraged to contact Environmental Services for further information. If you are sensitive to pesticide usage, advise us in writing accompanied by a medical certificate from a physician identifying the sensitivity. We will notify you if a pesticide application is scheduled to take place in the park adjacent to your home. Please send correspondence to: Director of Operations Operations Department 59 Carden St., Guelph ON N1H 3A1. E-mail: operations@guelph.ca

Parks and Trails

Park Regulations • All dog owners are asked to help maintain our parks for the enjoyment of all by cleaning up after their dog. • Dogs must be leashed while in City parks, on all trails, on all occupied sports fields, and on all GRCA lands. • Dogs are not allowed on playgrounds or in wading pools. • Eight areas within the city have been desig nated as leash free areas.

• • • • •


148 Guelph lawns and gardens go ‘green’ In January 2009, the City of Guelph’s Pesticide Use By-law took full effect, banning the non-essential and cosmetic use of pesticides for residents and commercial applicators. In 2008, the provincial government proposed a ban on the sale and cosmetic use of pesticides. The provincial ban – expected to come into effect this spring – will ban more than 300 pesticide products for use. Once the provincial ban is implemented it will replace the numerous municipal by-laws in place across the province.

Healthy landscapes, healthy community To help residents achieve healthy, natural lawns and gardens the City of Guelph offers a variety of resources and gardening workshops through its Healthy Landscapes program. Watch for upcoming workshops in the City News pages in the Friday edition of The Guelph Tribune or visit guelph.ca/ healthylandscapes

Residents with pesticide products can dispose of them safely at the City’s Household Hazardous Waste Depot, free of charge. The Depot is located at 110 Dunlop Drive and is open Tuesday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Safety Equipment The City of Guelph strongly recommends C.S.A. approved Safety Equipment including head, eye and facial protection be worn by those participating in sport activities.

Parks and Trails

Naturalization Naturalization provides a more diverse local environment by mimicking the course of nature within our parks. The urban city park supports a natural, self-perpetuating landscape that is not only environmentally sound but provides passive environmental recreation to its users. With the growth in development and the influx of residents, we are concerned about the human impact on our environment. Protection and maintenance of our woodlots, heritage trees, water resources and environmentally sensitive areas is mandatory. Our naturalization policy allows the park landscape to self-perpetuate and provide natural ecosystem functions while preserving our parks and the city’s natural resources for the enjoyment of future generations.

Playgrounds All City playground areas are unsupervised. Parents and guardians assume all risks for children using the playground equipment. Park Planning Park planning is the responsibility of the City’s Community Design and Development Services. The department continually prepares proposals for new open spaces and redevelops older parks. Park planners work with local neighbourhoods to ensure that park facilities meet their needs. Who to contact For more information or to comment on park planning please contact: City of Guelph Community Design and Development Services Call: 519-837-5616 E-mail: planning@guelph.ca For more information or to comment on park and trail maintenance please contact: City of Guelph Operations Department Call: 519-837-5628 E-mail: operations@guelph.ca
