A Message from Ann Pappert, Director of Community Services As the cooler weather sets in, many of the City’s recreation, culture and transit facilities will start to undergo a number of enhancements — you’ll notice some of them when you visit, while others will happen behind the scenes. These improvements, along with two more seasons of high quality programming, mean we have much to look forward to this fall and winter. Facility improvements are made possible through Infrastructure Stimulus and Recreational Infrastructure Canada grants from the federal and provincial governments. This funding will allow for accessibility upgrades, energy-efficiency improvements, and repairs at the Evergreen Seniors Centre, Guelph Transit, River Run Centre and the West End Community Centre. The Sleeman Centre will also benefit with the addition of a video score clock. The upgrades and new equipment will help reduce maintenance and energy costs, and ensure these facilities continue to serve you and your family for years to come. As many of you already know, a group of community fundraisers are busy working towards a new outdoor skating rink and water feature in front of new City Hall. This project also received Recreational Infrastructure Canada funding, and is sure to become a well-loved amenity for the whole community. Speaking of great things to come, construction on the Loretto Convent is also scheduled to begin this fall. Next year this iconic heritage building will open its doors as the new Guelph Civic Museum. Quality community facilities are a priority. The City of Guelph looks forward to seeing you and your family throughout the fall and winter at one of our many community recreation and culture facilities. Find out why they’re worth a visit throughout the pages of this guide. In closing, I’d like to thank everyone who participated in the development of the Recreation, Parks and Culture Master Plan and South End Component Study. The plan has been drafted, and staff is now reviewing its recommendations and will soon report to Council with strategies for moving forward. Until then, I invite you to visit guelph.ca often to learn more about what the City’s recreation, culture and transit services are offering this fall and winter.

Ann Pappert Director, Community Services


Welcome to the Fall/Winter edition of the Guelph Community Guide! As we put away our lawn mowers and bring out our rakes – and eventually snow shovels – we mark the change of another season in the diverse climate we enjoy in this part of the world. As it gets colder, some of us tend to batten down the hatches and wait for spring. But there’s no need to. A change in seasons means a whole new slate of activities, indoors and out. You’ll find hundreds of activities to choose from in this edition of the Community Guide. Whether you’re interested in fitness, arts and culture, or general interest courses – or all of the above – the City of Guelph has something for you. One of the objectives in our City’s strategic plan is to have the most physically and socially active residents in Canada. That objective applies to all citizens, from toddlers to seniors. I hope this Community Guide inspires you to take up the challenge! All the best for a happy, healthy, and active fall and winter. Sincerely,

Karen Farbridge Mayor

Get fit, feel good, have fun! This fall and winter exercise and tone your body on land or in the water, with weights or with your baby. Classes are grouped in one of three levels – mild, moderate, or challenging – according to fitness and skill requirements. Find out more about our Active Living PASS options to take advantage of cost savings!

What’s it all mean? Mild classes are low impact, low intensity classes. If you are a beginner or returning to a fitness routine after an extended absence, these classes are gentle on the joints and emphasize correct technique and education. These self-paced classes are suitable for all fitness levels. Moderate classes range between low and high intensity. These self-paced classes are ideal for those who exercise regularly two to three times per week.

Challenging classes are mid- to high-intensity cardiovascular and muscular endurance classes. These classes focus on balance, co-ordination and core stability. Ideal for dedicated exercisers.

Aquatics – Information

28 Swimming Class Observation Parents are welcome to stay and watch their child’s swimming lesson from the following areas: Centennial Pool – Observation balcony Victor Davis Pool – East and north sides of the pool deck, observation windows and balcony on main floor. West End Community Centre – Viewing Gallery, observation windows in the main corridor 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 in aquatic instructional programs and volunteering. Two or three assistant instructors are assigned to programs each evening. They are 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 benefit most from their involvement. 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 program lessons. They are the lessons expert 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 provide 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) 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 suitable for your child – swimming lessons are a long-term progression.

First Lesson In our efforts to ensure 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 your child. Progress Evaluation 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. Missed a Lesson? 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 by 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 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 into the pool. Options to consider 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.

Each child will receive individual assistance from a trained swim instructor and volunteers. Registration is dependent on volunteer availability. Our warm teaching pool at Victor Davis Pool is ideal for any child who performs better in a warmer environment. The shallow depth of this pool also encourages more active participation. The West End Community Centre has a warm therapy pool and a shallow leisure pool that are also conducive to active participation. Centennial Pool offers a quiet environment for individuals who perform better with fewer distractions. A quiet swim is offered at Victor Davis Pool on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and again at 2 to 3:30 p.m., and Fridays from 2 to 3:30 p.m. The West End Community Centre offers a quiet swim on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Volunteers or caregivers are admitted free with a PAL card. For individuals who require post rehabilitation therapy, we recommend our Aquatic Post Rehabilitation class or the Aquatic Arthritis Relief classes.

Aquatics -Fall

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 which allows all family members 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 programs 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).

Aquatics - Winter

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. Note - 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).

Play is an essential element of every child’s healthy development. Our preschool programs enhance children’s play through interactive playtimes, creative themes, engaging activities and a supportive, caring environment. Each program encourages children to build friendships and learn about the world. If your preschooler is attending a program without a caregiver, it is recommended they are toilet- trained, as changing needs can not be accommodated. Please call Sarah or Alana at 519-837-5657 with 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. Look for special discounts on some programs, if registering for both sessions Look for the Maple leaf icon for programs eligible for the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit.

What would your little one do if he or she received a personal phone call from Santa Claus? We think the only thing more special than meeting Santa Claus in person is speaking with him on the phone about Christmas celebrations, his reindeer, and his very special ‘list’. Your child may even hear the elves, Inky and Blinky, playing with Santa’s sleigh bells in the background. Santa has many preparations to make for this Christmas, and can only make phone calls one evening, Thursday, December 10 from 6 to 8 p.m. For children 10 and under. $2.50/local calls $5/long distance calls

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

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.

Facilitate Community Engagement Initiatives to: • engage citizen participation on projects and current issues that are important to our citizens • work together on community initiatives such as the development of community gardens, the Clean and Green event, Winterfest celebrations, and many others.

2.

Support the work of the Guelph Neighbourhood Support Coalition (NSC) 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 NSC, Neighbourhood Groups bring together their collective resources to share information, provide support to each other, distribute available funding resources, and advocate for community issues and required funding. The NSC 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.

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

Gearing up for winter The City of Guelph is committed to keeping our roads and sidewalks safe, and clear of snow and ice during the winter. The City’s winter maintenance services include snow clearing and the spreading of salt or sand to: t 1,200 km of roadway t 180 crosswalks, crossings, steps, walkways t 650 bus stops

Roads

To keep our city as safe as possible, streets are prioritized using criteria laid out in the Ontario Municipal Act, Ontario Regulation 239/02. t Arterial roads — also known as major through roads — are plowed first, within six hours after a snow fall has ended and when the snow accumulates to 2.5 cm. t Collector roads — which connect to arterial roads — are cleared next, within 12 hours of the end of a snow storm and when snow accumulates to 2.5 cm. Roads with higher traffic volume are cleared first. t Residential roads are pre-treated with sand and salt to provide traction while driving. Residential roads are cleared when 8 cm of snow accumulates and is completed within 24 hours of the end of a snow fall.

Gearing up for winter_GCGFW09-10.indd 1

Sidewalks are prioritized based on pedestrian traffic volume and proximity to high use facilities, such as schools, hospitals, and public buildings. t High Priority — 219 km of sidewalk is cleared when 4 cm of snow accumulates and within 24 hours of the end of a storm. t Medium Priority — 100 km of sidewalk is cleared when 4 cm of snow accumulates and within two days of the end of a storm. t Residential — 340 km of sidewalk is cleared when 8 cm of snow accumulates and within four to five days of the end of a storm.

Be a good neighbour, shovel your sidewalk

During a heavy snowfall it can take the City up to five days to plow all of the sidewalks. Clearing the ice and snow from the sidewalk in front of your home or business will make it safer for everyone. Keeping sidewalks free of snow and ice is important for everyone’s safety, particularly the elderly, children and people with disabilities. Be a good neighbour and help clear snow and ice for seniors and for those with special needs. For more information visit guelph.ca/snowremoval

Be a responsible pet owner The City of Guelph’s animal control bylaw was designed to restrict dogs from running at large in the city. A dog is “at large” if the dog is in a place other than the premises of the owner and not under control of any person. This includes trails, school yards, driveways, and other public and private property. What does this mean?

responds to voice commands, and is prevented from approaching within one metre of other animals and people.

In most areas of the city dogs must be on a leash and under control of their handlers. When on a leash, “under control” means the dog is prevented from approaching within one metre of other animals and people.

1 Pit bulls are not exempt from the provisions of the Dog Owner’s Liability Act (DOLA) or Bill 132 in leash-free parks. Pit bulls must be leashed, muzzled and under the control of their guardians in leash-free parks.

Where can dogs be off-leash?

Off-leash areas in the city

Certain parks in the city are designated off-leash areas1. Dogs must remain under control, even when in designated off-leash areas. When off-leash, “under control” means the dog remains close to its handler, (within sight and earshot)

Summer 2009

THERE ARE no two ways about it: Guelph’s green spaces make the city a lively and enjoyable place to live. While making room for more people, homes and jobs, the City is also protecting and preserving habitats for wildlife, woodlands, wetlands, rivers and valley systems — all of which are important components of Guelph’s natural heritage. The City of Guelph has studied and

mapped the natural features within the city boundary, and identified areas where species of birds, frogs, salamanders, fish and other wildlife live. The City also recommends ‘buffers’ be established around these areas to help protect sensitive natural systems. Guelph’s Natural Heritage Strategy protects, preserves and enhances the city’s unique natural characteristics like rivers, wetlands and woodlands.

Urban trees – Guelph’s green assets Each tree in Guelph forms part of the urban forest; whether it’s in your yard, a park or a conservation area. Guelph is lucky to have approximately 30 per cent tree canopy cover across the city. In an effort to enhance this tree canopy, the City has developed a framework for a Strategic Urban Forest Management Plan — a plan to help Guelph effectively manage our city’s trees. Once developed the plan will aim to: t Plant more trees across the city t Develop an inventory to monitor and manage Guelph’s trees t Protect healthy trees on private and public land through pruning and education Preserving Guelph’s Natural Heritage System is critical to Guelph’s balanced, responsible approach to growth.
