About this Guide

First Come - First Served

Submission of a registration form does not guarantee a place in the recreation program. All registrations will be processed in the order they are received. Please note: online and touch-tone telephone registrations take place 24/7. Registrations are not confirmed until you receive a course confirmation number. If a registration form is received by the Parks, Recreation and Culture office prior to the registration start date, it will be processed in the order it is received, as time allows, starting on the applicable registration date.

Non-City Resident Policy

Personal Information

Personal information is collected in accordance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.M. 56 under the authority of the Municipal Act 2001, S.O. 2001, c 25 and will be used by the City of Orillia Parks, Recreation and Culture Department for the operation of recreation programs. Inquiries about the collection or use of this information should be directed to the City’s Freedom of Information Co-ordinator.

Class Postponement / Cancellations

If it is necessary to cancel a class due to inclement weather, school board cancellations, pool closures, instructor illness, etc. every attempt will be made to re-schedule the class. However, if the class cannot be re-scheduled, a pro-rated refund will be issued. The Parks, Recreation and Culture Department reserves the right to withdraw, postpone, cancel or combine classes, to limit/increase registration or change course locations at any time.

Refunds

A full refund will be issued prior to the start of an activity, only: • When an activity is cancelled by the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department. • When the date, time, or location of the recreation program is changed by the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department and prohibits attendance.

Seniors will receive a 25% discount on all recreation programs. Please write “senior” on your registration form. If registering online or by touch-tone telephone, your discount will be automatically applied. Non-resident seniors deduct 25% from the non-resident rate. Please note: the senior rate applies to any registrant who is 60 years or older.

Medical refund requests must be accompanied by a doctor’s certificate. It will only be processed up to the half-way point of any recreation program. Besides medical reasons, absolutely no refunds will be given after the half-way point. The refund will be pro-rated based on the number of lessons left in the recreation program at the time the request is received by the Parks, Recreation and Culture office or on the S.U.N. System, regardless of the date the registrant stopped attending the recreation program. All refunds will be assessed an administrative fee of 10%. (Min. $5.00 and Max. $10.00) No other refunds, changes or transfers will be issued after the half-way point except for medical reasons. The amount to be refunded can be left “on account” and may be used for a future payment. Due to the Credit Card cardholder agreement, payments made by Credit Card will only be refunded back to the same Credit Card account. Refunds will never be issued by cheque - only by cash, debit or credit card.

Prorating of Recreation Program Fees

Transfers

All recreation programs have a rate for City of Orillia residents and a rate for non-residents. A non-resident is defined as anyone who does not pay taxes directly to the City of Orillia. The programs offered by the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department are subsidized by municipal taxes, so we keep the cost as low as possible for those who already contribute to the municipal tax base. Twenty five per cent will be added to the registration costs of non-residents. The Parks, Recreation and Culture Department reserves the right to request proof of residency.

Senior Citizens’ Rate

Parks, Recreation and Culture does not prorate fees for late registration of recreation programs.

HST

Transfers from one course to another are permitted up to five business days prior to the start of the recreation program. In the case of swimming lessons, transfers are permitted after the first lesson, and only if there is space, upon approval of the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department. All transfers will be subject to a minimum $3.00 transfer fee.

NSF Cheques

The City of Orillia charges an administration fee of $25.00 for each NSF cheque received.

Waiting Lists

Once a class is filled, interested registrants will be placed on a waiting list in the order the registration is received. It is always recommended to go on the waiting list as we endeavour to accommodate people by expanding the class size or creating an additional class.

Photographs / Video

Unless the participant or guardian indicates otherwise, Parks, Recreation and Culture will assume permission is given for pictures taken during any recreation program to be used to promote recreation.

Weather Cancellations

During regular business hours, weather cancellations will be announced on the following radio stations: • The DOCK 104.1 FM • CHAY 93.1 FM • LIFE 100.3 FM • KICX 106 FM • ROCK 95.7 FM • Sunshine 89.1 FM Weather cancellations will also be posted on the City’s website and on the S.U.N. System by 4:30 p.m. on the day of the class. The decision to cancel will not be made until after 3:30 p.m.

Special Needs Information

REGISTRATION

Every effort will be made to ensure recreation programs are open to all members of our community whenever it is safe and enjoyable to do so. In order to do this we work closely with local agencies to co-ordinate resources to help make recreation programs accessible.

Participants with special needs are encouraged and welcome to participate in any of our recreation programs. In order for the participant to experience success it is important to consider the participant’s ability, age, need, and the type of activities that take place within the recreation program.

Communication and co-operation between all parties will ensure a safe and fun environment for all participants and will help to remove any real or artificial barriers to participation. Ask the questions. . . •

Is support required at school?

Does a physical, developmental and/or learning disability exist that affects the safety of the participant or that of other recreation program registrants ?

Is the participant currently associated with a support agency ?

Is extra support needed at home for basic care such as dressing and toileting ?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then you may need support. Please contact the Parks, Recreation and Culture office to speak with staff.

Be a Best Buddy!

Are you interested in making a difference in the life of a child with special needs? This program will link a participant with special needs with a volunteer who is committed to providing support for integration in a recreational setting. Contact Roz Llewellyn at 705-329-7251 for more information on the Best Buddy program. Best Buddy volunteers participate in the recreation program with their buddy free of charge.

If you have any questions, please contact Christine Mitchell at 705329-7250.

Notes for Parents/Gaurdans

Please ensure that your child has gone to the bathroom, and has had a shower before entering the pool. Please ensure that your child wears proper swimming diapers if necessary.

Every effort is made by the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department to keep lessons scheduled as advertised. However, due to low registration numbers and wait-lists, we may have to cancel and/or combine some classes. Parks, Recreation and Culture will make every effort to notify, in advance, if swimming lessons are cancelled. On occasion, cancellations may happen on short notice due to unexpected situations such as pool fouling, facility cancellations, power failure, or mechanical difficulties. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. For weather cancellations during weekdays, we will make the decision at 3:30 p.m. that day and cancellations will be announced on the radio as well as posted on the S.U.N.

Film Camps from The Director’s Cut Age: 8-12Y

Unleash your inner Spielberg at The Director's Cut by creating your own film short. Write a script, learn real Hollywood film camera angles, shoot the movie in eye popping HD, act in it and then edit it (add music, sound effects, titles, special effects and more) using Final Cut X! All participants will receive a digital copy. Workshops are mentored by trained film makers. Imagination and creativity is a prerequisite.

The anticipation of going to see a film is often exaggerated with the advertised movie trailer. Excitement, fear, happiness, and sadness, are often only a few of the emotions conveyed during the short movie trailer that teases your senses and makes you want to see more! In this full day workshop, using a genre of your choice you will create a story based on specific camera angles, use a digital camcorder and tripod, learn how to capture a scene to capture that emotion, and finally how to edit all of the digital movie footage together to create your movie trailers of your fictitious film. All participants will receive a chaptered DVD of their work.

Film Camps from The Director’s Cut Make your own Movie Trailer

Age: 9-14Y

Bring your Super Hero to life at The Director's Cut by creating your own digital comic book workshop get to be anything you want! Capture your comic through our digital cameras and then make it come alive using our Apple Macbooks. All participants will receive a digital copy of their work.

The anticipation of going to see a film is often exaggerated with the advertised movie trailer. Excitement, fear, happiness, and sadness, are often only a few of the emotions conveyed during the short movie trailer that teases your senses and makes you want to see more! In this full day workshop, using a genre of your choice you will create a story based on specific camera angles, use a digital camcorder and tripod, learn how to capture a scene to capture that emotion, and finally how to edit all of the digital movie footage together to create your movie trailers of their fictitious film. All participants will receive a digital copy of their work.

Leacock Museum

Orillia Opera House

Located on the shores of Lake Couchiching at the Old Brewery Bay in Orillia, the Leacock Museum National Historic Site is one of Canada’s most endearing cultural jewels. Stephen Leacock (1869-1944) won for himself a truly international reputation as author, economist and humorist. His “Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town” has never been out of print since it was first published in 1912. And with it, his mythical town of Mariposa/Orillia, has been enshrined in the hearts and minds of readers and visitors the world over.

Since 1895 the Orillia Opera House has been bringing the best in local, national and international talent to its stages. From performances by living legends to our popular summer theatre shows, there is always something happening that will entertain, educate and inspire.

Winter Safety Tips Bundle up and Dress in Layers • The outer layer should be waterproof. • Remove inner layers if your body gets too warm. • Don’t forget your mittens and a hat that covers your ears. • Children should wear neck warmers instead of scarves. • Wear sunscreen, sun reflecting off snow and ice can cause sunburn. • Replace wet clothes with dry ones. • Beware of the wind-chill factor and dress for the colder temperature.

Play Safe • Make sure children do not play on snow banks near the roads. • Snow tunnels and forts can be dangerous because the roof might collapse. • When making a snow fort, do not put a roof on it. • Be careful when playing with snowballs. • Supervise children when playing in the snow.

Recomended Minimum Ice Thickness for New Clear Hard Ice No ice is without some risk. Be sure to measure clear hard ice in several places.

(7 cm) or less Stay off

City of Orillia Important Snowmobile By-Law Chapter 667 of the Municipal Code

If you suspect frostbite, go inside at once, remove all wet clothes and replace with dry ones, warm frostbitten areas slowly with a blanket or a warm part of your body and call your doctor if the frostbitten area remains discoloured or numb.

The by-law states:

City Parks are OFF LIMITS to snowmobiles, except where O.D.S.A. trails cross through the park. The City owned “C.P. Right of Way” is also OFF LIMITS except for the portion between the southerly side of Wilson’s Point Road and the northerly side of Hughes Road.

Off-Leash Dog Zones

Kiwanis Skateboard Park

Dogs love to run free. With that in mind, the City of Orillia has created two Off-Leash Dog Zones, where owners can take their dogs and let them run, unleashed, in a fenced-in area built especially for man’s best friends.

The Kiwanis Skateboard Park was built in 1999 through the hard work of many people in the community.

Kitchener Park

Please consider the following when using the park: • Helmets must be worn by all participants. • All litter must be placed in container. • No foul language is permitted. • No food or drink are permitted on the concrete skate pad.

Disc Golf Course

PARKS

The off-leash dog zone at Clayt French Park is a small off-leash zone, which was first created as a pilot project. It proved to be one of the most popular features of the Park.

Some of the features of the park include a fun box, bank, rails, stairs with rail and snake run.

PARKS

Clayt French Park

Open since 2011, this large Off-Leash Dog Zone within Kitchener Park serves as a social hub for dogs in the area. It is also open to the lake so dogs can enjoy the water and have a drink.

Leash Free Dog Zones Rules • Dogs must be kept on a leash until they have reached the designated Off-Leash Zone. • All dogs must be licensed and fully vaccinated. • Please clean up after your dog. • No children under the age of 12 are permitted unless supervised by an adult (this area is designated as a “Dog Zone” - it is not a children’s play area). • Dogs that show aggression are not allowed within the Off- Leash Dog Zone. • Please remember that this is not a training area for your dog. • Do not bring food of any kind into the Off-Leash Dog Zone (this includes all dogs treats) as food is a trigger for fights between dogs • You are liable for any injury caused by a dog under your supervision. Users of the park assume the risk of injury / damage to themselves and their dog.

The City of Orillia offers a unique, fun and challenging 9-hole disc golf course at Homewood Park free of charge. Installed in 2006, the course has become a popular course among disc golf enthusiasts. Disc Golf is a lot like traditional golf, except players use specially made plastic flying discs instead of balls and clubs, and throw them at an above ground target. The object of the game is to throw a golf disc into the target in the fewest number of throws. Golfers are welcome to use their own discs, however, official golf discs can be borrowed from the Orillia Public Library.

www.orillia.ca or 705-325-4SUN (4786)

Rules, scorecard and course map for the disc golf course are available to print off on the City’s website at: www.orillia.ca

Graffiti Sightings

PA R K S, R E C R E AT I O N & C U LT U R E

An Essential Part of Your Life

Graffiti is a growing problem in the City of Orillia. In an effort to discourage graffiti, the City’s current practice is to cover it up promptly when we find it. This is where you, the public, can help. Calling 705-325-1311 to report graffiti sightings on City buildings and property promptly so we can cover it up will hopefully discourage the graffiti artists. Please note that the City does not object to non-offensive markings within the skateboard park.

How To Read Trail Blazes A Skill Everyone Should Know The Scout Valley Trails are marked with blazes that match the colour of the trail that you are on; for instance the Sugarbush Trail is marked with orange blazes, the Algonquin Trail is marked with green blazes, and the Homestead Trail is marked with blue blazes. Keep an eye on these different blazes when hiking to avoid getting lost. Blazes are rectangles of paint usually about 15 cm high and 5 cm wide on trees, fence posts, and rocks. The blazes may vary in size depending on the surroundings. Typically the blaze faces you as you approach. If the path ahead is not obvious, another blaze should be visible from the first. If the path is straightforward, the blazes are usually less frequent. If you lose the trail, return to where you saw the last blaze and look carefully for the next blaze. If the trail is rerouted for any reason, such as for tree regeneration, the blazes are usually covered over with dark paint. Always follow the proper blazes staying off closed sections of the trail.

To Report Misuse of the Trails Please contact the City of Orillia Parks and Recreation department by email at parks@orillia.ca or by telephone at 705-329-7250. Scout Valley Scout Valley is a naturalized park that consists of three individual loop trails. This park can be accessed from Line 15 North, Old Barrie Road or Forest Home. The Line 15 parking entrance is also home to Regan House.

Trails @ Scout Valley As trail users we must constantly ask ourselves, can the next one hundred people down the trail, do what I am doing and not leave trace of their passing? Trails by their very nature are intrusions on the landscape and actually change the landscape. Ensuring that we work together to create a natural experience that meets all user needs without blazing new and unofficial trails not only protects the natural environment we all enjoy but also helps to soften the impact of the many park users.

www.orillia.ca or 705-325-4SUN (4786)

A single blaze indicates the path is straight ahead.

A double blaze indicates a change in direction. A double blaze is indicated by two parallel marks with one marking lower than the other. The higher mark indicates the direction the path turns. Here the marking indicates to turn right.

This double blaze indicates you are about to turn left since the higher marking is on the left side.

To report misuse of the trails at Scout Valley or any of Orillia’s other trails, please contact the City of Orillia Parks and Recreation Department by email at parks@orillia.ca or by telephone at 705-329-7250.
