Message from the Mayor

Message from the Director of Community Services

Happy Spring Everyone! Now that Spring has returned to Guelph, it’s the perfect time to take advantage of all the fitness and recreation opportunities offered in our community. There has been much talk in the media in recent years about the importance of wellness. Being active, learning new skills, and participating in group activities are beneficial for physical and emotional health. They also help build a well-connected community where people get to know each other. The City of Guelph is proud to offer such a range of recreation and fitness programs. It’s part of what makes us the country’s safest, most caring community and one of the top ten cities in Canada in which to live.

As a new season begins, I’d like to welcome you to our Spring & Summer edition of the Guelph Community Guide, Guelph’s official guide to City recreation, leisure and culture programming. In this edition, we have all of your spring and summer favourites along with some exciting new offerings. If you’ve never taken a class, sent your kids to our camps or taken part in a group, we hope this year you’ll join the thousands of residents who participate in the City of Guelph’s fun, affordable programs. Also, you’ll uncover many opportunities for you and your family to get involved – in sports, neighborhood groups, cultural pursuits or any number of outdoor or indoor hobbies. A wide variety of exciting programs, facilities, parks and trails are available across our community. The City of Guelph is committed to providing high-quality, accessible and inclusive recreation opportunities to all; we recognize these services as a valuable asset to our community and essential for the health, well being and quality of life of all our residents.

Karen Farbridge Mayor

Behind the scenes, our staff in Community Services are working hard to ensure that the changing needs of our community are reflected in the programs and services offered. We look forward to hosting you and your family through spring and summer at any of our many community recreation and culture facilities. Sincerely,

Ann Pappert Director, Community Services

Respect and Responsibility

What is the Rzone? The Rzone is an operating procedure that identifies a code of conduct which applies to all City of Guelph recreation and cultural centres, facilities, parks and programs. The Rzone procedure enforces a set of expectations around violence, vandalism and inappropriate behaviour for participants and the general public.

What does the Rzone mean?

How you can help

The “R” in the Rzone logo stands for Respect and Responsibility. Respect for Yourself; Respect for Others; and Responsibility for your Actions. The logo will serve as a reminder to staff and the public that the operating procedure is in effect and applies to everyone: coaches, parents, players, performers, audiences and visitors.

Clean up after your group activities such as picnics and sports tournaments in City parks

Remember to respect property, materials and equipment when using services or participating in programs at our community centres, arenas, parks, theatre or museum

Goal

Report such items as graffiti, broken glass or burnt out lights in any City facility or park

Report vandalism such as a park bench in need of repair or playground equipment that has been tampered with

Report suspicious behaviour such as a person peeking into parked cars

Report activities such as verbal assaults, threats/ aggression, physical harm, alcohol consumption, theft and harassment.

The goal of the Rzone operating procedure is to improve the safety and leisure environment in all City of Guelph recreation and cultural centres, facilities, parks and programs. Community organizations, residents, visitors and City staff will work together to promote respect and responsibility, improving the safety, appearance and environment of our community.

If Michelangelo were on this project it would take four years. This year, we’re working on our inner beauty with 25 construction projects on city roads and buildings.

About Guelph RemAsteRed Thanks to $44.4 million in federal and provincial Infrastructure Stimulus funds, $3.6 million in recreational infrastructure funding, and $24 million furnished by our City, Guelph will benefit from 25 major projects that will renew our aging infrastructure and create a more beautiful, better functioning and sustainable city.

For traffic detours, transit updates, project information and maps visit guelph.ca.

To take advantage of this government funding – and reduce the burden on Guelph taxpayers – we must complete these projects before March 2011. Essentially, that means we will be completing five years worth of work in one year. Not only will these projects create 800 local jobs, they’ll enrich our quality of life and prepare us for the demands of our growing population.

Aquatics Important Information Instructors, Assistant Instructors and Volunteers

Progress Evaluation

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 to prepare them to teach your children.

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

Two or three assistant instructors are assigned to programs each evening as well. 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.

Missed a Lesson?

Volunteers also help with City Aquatics programs. These 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 lesson programs. They are the lesson experts and are available to answer your questions and assist with any of your concerns. Do not hesitate to speak with Deck Supervisor immediately about your concern - please don’t wait until the last class! Your feedback is very important as it helps us provide you with quality programs and successful aquatic experiences.

Pool Temperatures

Victor Davis pool is approximately 28.3oC (83oF) West End Community Centre Lap pool is approximately 28.3oC (83oF) Leisure pool 31oC (88oF) Therapy pool 33oC (92oF) Centennial pool is 30.1oC (86oF)

Unfortunately, due to the large volume of swimming participants, we are unable to make up missed lessons. 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. This is reported on radio station 106.1 Magic FM.

Swimming Attire

Participants should wear a gender appropriate bathing suit that is suitable for a public family environment. Cut-offs and street wear are 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 into the pool. Options that could be considered are: a) Reusable swim diapers. Infant ones can be purchased in most stores or at the West End Community Centre and Victoria Road Recreation Centre. Adult ones can be purchased through Gabbys 1-888-442-2297 b) Disposable swim diapers - i.e. Huggies, Little Swimmers (available at most stores, West End Community Centre and Victoria Road Recreation Centre) - or Adult Diapers i.e. Depends. c) Plastic pants with tight fitting elastic around the legs and waist.

What to expect from swimming lessons

Developing swimming skills requires a lot of practice and positive feedback to be successful. We encourage you to talk with your child about his/her lessons. Make sure that you have realistic expectations and your child feels no pressure to “pass” a level. You both should acknowledge the importance of completing the skills taught in each lesson at pace that is suitable for your child - swimming lessons are a long term progression.

First Lesson

In our efforts to ensure that your child receives the best possible instruction, we ask that you bring your child’s most recent report card with him/her to the first lesson. This will help your water safety instructor tailor their classes to effectively meet the needs of each child.

Aquatics 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. Participants who do not have a previous report or are unsure of their level, will be screened and assigned to an appropriate level during the first lesson. Participants will be placed in classes with children of the same ability and age. Each class may include two or three different swimming levels. Parent participation is not required. Low student to instructor ratios will continue to be maintained and all skill evaluations will be ongoing throughout the session. Whale participants will be taught with school age children. To help improve our program, and provide a better teaching experience for your child, parents must provide their child’s swimming level when registering for family lessons. Family lesson registration will not be available on the automated phone system (IVR). Centennial Pool

Aquatics - Summer 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 report to the first lesson. Participants who do not have a previous report or are unsure of their level, will be screened and assigned to an appropriate level during the first lesson. Participants will be placed in classes with children of the same ability and age. NOTE: Each class may include two or three different swimming levels. Parent participation is not required. Low student to instructor ratios will continue to be maintained and all skill evaluations will be ongoing throughout the session.

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. Youths and teens can learn the responsibility of leading and planning - all in an engaging atmosphere. Find out about all the great activities to do this summer!

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.

Camp Ratios

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. All camps have one Camp Team Leader (site supervisor). In addition, most camps run on a minimum ratio of 1 counsellor to every 13 kids. Kiddie camp operates on a minimum ratio of 1:8, our larger camps; Daily Discoveries and Swim Camp, a ratio of 1:10. Counsellor staffs always make up our ratios and we often have extra help from volunteers and Leaders-in-Training on site.

Code Of Conduct

We believe that a safe and inviting camp environment is essential to 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, co-operative, 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 demonstrating inappropriate behaviour may be asked to leave 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 participating in the program, then 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.

Special Guests and Event Days

Take a walk on the wild side, make slimy or textured crafts to mimick your favourite species and enjoy your encounters during a visit from the Reptile Zoo! This is just one example of the activities planned for one special day at your camp! Themed event days including a visit from a guest speaker or a talented activity (ie. Mad Science, pottery fun, bouncy castle). A full day of especially fun themed activities! See what “Event Day” is planned on your week at camp! Please note: Special Guests or themes are subject to change without notice.

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 swim ratios. If you are interested in volunteering, contact the Volunteer Facilitator at 519-822-1260 x 2702 (before May) or x 2707 (May - Sep).

Fees listed are for Guelph residents. Non-residents please add $7.50. All fees are subject to applicable taxes.

GET THE LEAD OUT!

Are you pregnant or do you have young children and live in an older home? Drinking water and lead

Guelph’s municipal drinking water undergoes more than 18,000 tests each year to ensure it meets or exceeds the provincial drinking water quality standards. Guelph’s groundwater supply contains little (well below the provincial standard of 10 micrograms per litre) or no naturallyoccurring lead. However, if your home was built before the mid 1950s, it may have a lead water service.

Who is most at risk?

Children six years of age and under, pregnant women or women planning a pregnancy are most likely to be affected by lead. For more information about lead and your health, contact Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health at 1-800-265-7293 or visit wdghu.org.

Is your water service made of lead?

Water service lines are the pipes which bring water from the watermain in the street into a home. Lead piping was used for water service lines in older homes, usually built before the mid-1950s. Lead is easy to identify, it is dullish grey in colour, leaves a silver mark when scratched, is easily pliable, and is not magnetic. Often, interior plumbing has been replaced with copper pipes; however it’s still possible that the water service (the piping underground) is made of lead.

Neighbourhood Engagement The City of Guelph’s Neighbourhood Engagement division works closely with volunteers, citizens and staff from City service areas and community agencies. Neighbourhood Engagement has three main areas of focus: 1.

Facilitate Community Engagement initiatives to: • engage citizen participation on projects and current issues that are important to Guelph citizens • work together on community initiatives such as the development of community gardens, the Children’s Report Card, the Clean and Green event, and Winterfest celebrations

2.

Support the work of the Guelph Neighbourhood Support Coalition (GNSC) The Guelph Neighbourhood Support Coalition is a network of neighbourhood groups and community organizations that is committed to building and sustaining neighbourhood groups, strengthening individuals and families, and ensuring healthy growth and development for every child.

Through the GNSC, neighbourhood groups bring together their collective resources to share information, provide support, distribute available funding resources, and advocate for community issues and required funding.

The GNSC envisions a Guelph community with healthy children, strong families, and vibrant neighbourhoods that embraces diversity, creates opportunities, and promotes a high quality of life for all residents.

3.

Support for individual neighbourhood groups Twelve different groups are supported by the City of Guelph to provide recreational and social programs to the local community. Each neighbourhood group operates in an autonomous way at the grass roots level to meet the interests and needs of children, youth and families that have been identified within a particular neighbourhood.

If your community does not have a neighbourhood group, and you and your neighbours are interested in learning more about how to start one, your contacts are:

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

Park Regulations

• All dog owners must ‘stoop and scoop’ their dog’s waste • Dogs must be on-leash while in City parks, including all trails, occupied sports fields and on all GRCA lands. • Dogs are not permitted on tennis courts, playgrounds or wading pools • 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 vehicle found in violation will be ticketed. • Golf and archery are not permitted • Alcoholic beverages are not permitted

Parkland Encroachments

Residential neighbourhoods are conceived and designed with a tremendous amount of thought, and planning. In many cases, they are carefully created to include a variety of features such as parks, storm water management ponds and corridors, and wetlands. The City of Guelph owns these public spaces or “City lands” in your neighbourhood and most others across the city. It’s the City’s responsibility to ensure City lands are used for their intended purposes. Doing so has a great number of health, wellness and environmental benefits that are important to everybody. When humans interfere with neighbourhood features, it’s called ‘encroachment.’ Encroachment refers to the gradual trespass on another’s property. The City of Guelph has a bylaw in place that prohibits a variety of encroachment activities. Encroachment activities might seem harmless, but they have the potential to cause significant problems. You can help preserve an important balance in your neighbourhood by avoiding encroachment activities, and by informing the City if you see them taking place. Encroachments take many forms: • Grass cutting of city lands, whether maintained or naturalized areas • Dumping (grass clippings, garden debris, or other refuse) on city lands • Removal of, or additions to Living Fences • Planting, pruning, cutting and/or removal of plants on City lands • Expansion of yard areas, including gardens, decks, sheds, retaining walls, fences The City of Guelph is committed to the maintenance of City lands. They’re there to be enjoyed by everyone. Please help us ensure this is the case.

For by-law concerns contact Operations at 519-837-5628

Leash-free Zones

• Eight areas within the City have been designated as leash-free zones • Dogs may be off-leash on unoccupied sports fields from 8pm to 8am (May 1 to September 14) and from 5pm to 8am (September 15 to April 30). • All dog owners must ‘stoop and scoop’ their dog’s waste. Stoop and Scoop bylaw is in effect. • Dogs must be on-leash while entering or leaving a leash-free area • Dogs must have current vaccinations and wear a current license • Owners must ensure dogs are prevented from jumping, biting or harassing any person, dog or animal • Dogs must respond to voice command and be under control • Dogs are to remain within sight and earshot For animal control concerns, call the Guelph Humane Society 519-824-3091

Registration starts Monday, March 8. Register at 519-837-5699 or regexpress.guelph.ca.


Pesticide Use

The City of Guelph operates under the Province of Ontario’s Cosmetic Pesticide ban introduced on April 22, 2009. Accordingly, all residents and businesses are to comply with the provincial ban, as well. Questions or non-compliance reports should be directed to a ministry district office during regular business hours, or the Ministry’s Pollution Hotline at 1-866-MOE-TIPS (1-866-663-8477) after business hours. The City promotes cultural practices as part of a landscape maintenance program and residents are encouraged to contact Environmental Services for further information.

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 Thursday edition of the Guelph Tribune or visit guelph.ca/healthylandscapes.

Guelph lawns and gardens go ‘green’

The Province’s Cosmetic Pesticide Ban overrides municipal pesticide bylaw. This ban outlines one set of clear, transparent and rules for pesticide use across Ontario. Guelph’s Pesticide Bylaw 2007-18308, is no longer in effect. Residents can dispose of their pesticide products safely at the City’s Household Hazardous Waste Depot, free of charge. The Depot, located at 110 Dunlop Drive, is open Tuesday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.

Playgrounds

Parks and Trails

All City playground areas are unsupervised. Parents and guardians assume all risks for children using the playground equipment.

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.

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: Community Design and Development Services Call: 519-837-5616 E: planning@guelph.ca For more information or to comment on park and trail maintenance please contact: Operations Call: 519-837-5628 E: operations@guelph.ca

For more information visit guelph.ca/wetdry or call 519-767-0598

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.

Fees listed are for Guelph residents. Non-residents please add $7.50. All fees are subject to applicable taxes.

River Run’s Volunteer Company uses over 250 volunteers to work most operational positions associated with Front of House including ushers, ticket takers, bar staff, coat check and more. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and 18 for the bar. We provide training programs for each new volunteer and request a minimum of two shifts per month. For more information call the Volunteer Coordinator at 519-837-5662 x 2206.

Did you know that more than 18,000 microbiological and chemical tests are performed on Guelph water samples each year? In all cases, Guelph water continues to meet or exceed the provincial drinking water quality standards. Take pride in Guelph water — it’s the clear choice. Watch for municipal drinking water at community events this year as the City takes its drinking water on the road — educating people about this valuable resource, while providing easy access to municipal drinking water.
