Welcome to the 2011 edition of Aurora’s Spring and Summer Parks & Recreation Services Program Guide. Aurora is fortunate to have many indoor and outdoor recreation facilities; offering a variety of sports and recreation programs and family friendly special events that play a key role in making the Town such a great place to live and visit. This guide will help you navigate all the great things the Town has to offer when it comes to health and well being. For example, there are more than 20 kilometers of trails within Aurora’s borders where you can walk, hike or run 365 days a year. As the weather warms up, and people move outdoors, our community programs and events will begin to heat up starting with the Easter Egg Hunt on April 23 and March Break Camp for the kids. Those will be following by our exciting Summer Camp programs, Canada Day festivities and the always popular Concerts in the Park series. There is also the annual Aurora Art Show and Sale running May 7 and 8, Movies in the Park and the Backyard Splash Program on page 12 of this guide. These are just a handful of examples of the fun and exciting programs and events you and your family can take part in during the spring and summer months.

Mayor Geoffrey Dawe

The Town is committed to promoting the role of active lifestyles and recreational programs for residents and families in Aurora. We are proud to have an active, healthy, growing community in Aurora with the vision to maintain a strong role in recreation and sports within their families. Please take the time to browse through the pages of the 2011 Spring and Summer Parks & Recreation Services Program Guide or visit our website at www.e-aurora.ca to find out what is happening in your Town. I’m sure you’ll find an activity that meets your needs. Sincerely,

Mayor Geoffrey Dawe

Arena Programs Spring & Summer 2011 From the Director’s Desk... Spring/Summer 2011 has arrived so let the snow melt and the birds sing and come out and enjoy all the wonderful amenities that Aurora has to offer! The Parks and Recreation Services Department encourages you to get out and explore our amazing trail system and our many wonderful parks. It is important to highlight National Youth Week which will be celebrated across Ontario from May 1st to 7th this year. National Youth Week celebrates the participation of youth within their respective communities to include recreation, drama, sport, dance, civic engagement, art, volunteerism or leadership. I would also like to take this time to highlight that June 2011 has been designated as Recreation and Parks Month as coordinated by Parks and Recreation Ontario (PRO). PRO defines Recreation and Parks Month as: • An exciting way to increase awareness of the value and important benefits of recreation and parks to individuals, families and communities • An opportunity to celebrate the success of recreation and parks in contributing to the quality of life in Ontario • “Live it Everyday”, our theme, expresses the need to embrace and participate in recreation and parks programs, services and facilities - everyday! For those of you with children, now is the time to begin planning camp registrations for both March Break and Summer 2011 Camps. The Town of Aurora continues to offer an amazing selection of camps - you are sure to find a camp that will suit the specific interest of your child from sports to science to art camps. Register early as these popular camps fill up quickly! I am also extending an invitation to you to come out and participate in the many summer events the Parks and Recreation Services Department is coordinating; specifically, our Annual Easter Egg Hunt, Celebrate Canada on July 1st, 2011 the Concert in the Park series being held at Aurora Town Park, and the Movies in the Park series. All of these events are extremely popular and well attended by our residents, so mark your calendars so that you do not miss out on the fun. This is a wonderful time to get out and get active!

Aquatic program Registration name Information Swimming lesson information

Welcome to our Red Cross swim program! Whether you’re a young person in our Instructor Development Program, a parent watching your child, or an adult learning to swim, we want you to know...WE ARE HERE TO SERVE YOU. Let us know where we can help, and what you think of our program. You are welcome to contact the Loriann Ierullo, the Aquatic Supervisor at 905-726-4763.

What to expect...

Swimming, like other physical skills, requires lots of practice and positive feedback. Candidates should feel comfortable and relaxed during their lessons and progress at their own rate. Talk about the lessons with your child. Make sure that you have realistic expectations and that your child feels no pressure to ”pass” a level or get a badge. Try to look upon swimming lessons as a long term progression.

Program cancellations

Programs may be modified or cancelled due to low registration.

Pool fouling/closure

The pool may close in an untimely manner due to a pool fouling or mechanical problem. To reduce the number of closures due to pool foulings, participants not toilet trained are required to wear snug fitting plastic pants. No disposable diapers. Also, please keep eating to a minimum prior to swimming. Cancelled classes cannot be made up. Credits will be issued.

Parent’s Day

Classes will leave the water 5 minutes early on the 6th lesson to allow time for parents to speak with their child’s Water Safety Instructor regarding their child’s progress. It is also at this lesson that we allow photographs and videotaping of classes. Please note that this equipment is not permitted in the change rooms and must be brought through the Family Change room under the supervision of the reception staff.

*PLEASE NOTE: Special Needs Lessons are not available through Tele-PLAY. Please call

(905) 726-4763 for further details.

Integration Services

Summer Camp Integration Services The Town of Aurora welcomes and encourages all children with disabilities to participate in any of our summer camp programs. Every effort will be made for a child to participate at a level suitable to their abilities, support needs, program choice and facility access. Let us help you provide a positive experience for your little camper.

A Participant Requires Extra Support if... • Extra support is required at school in the classroom • A physical, medical, developmental and/or learning disability exists that affects the safety of the participant or that of other participants • Extra support is needed at home for basic care such as dressing and toileting • Participant is currently associated with a support agency or program

Support Options... 1. You may provide the one-on-one support yourself in the form of a family member, friend, trained support/social worker or nurse. 2. You may request volunteer support. Leisure Buddy Volunteers are primarily students volunteering their time. Although they will participate in a training program, they may not necessarily have experience working with individuals with special needs. 3. You may request staff support. We have a limited number of Integration Counsellors who will provide one-on-one support during the camp programs. There is NO additional fee for this service. Please be aware that we will do our best to provide your child with the support they require; however, it is not guaranteed that we will be able to secure a Leisure Buddy Volunteer or Integration Counsellor for the specific week you request.

How Do I Register? 1. Look through the current Parks and Recreation Program Guide, Summer Camp section for a camp that your child may be interested in. 2. Contact our Community Programmer to discuss your registration plans and support options. Call 905-727-3123 ext. 3121 or ncampsall@e-aurora.ca 3. Register for your program using any of the registration methods listed on page 6 4. Our Community Programmer will confirm your registration and support requirements prior to your chosen camp session.

Important Information

When registering your child please ensure that you include the details on your registration form or that you phone the reception staff at 905-841-7529 or 905-726-4770 to have your family file updated with the specific needs, medical condition and/or life threatening allergy. Please note that there is no way of indicating this information when using our Tele-PLAY registration system.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! Become a Leisure Buddy! Are you interested in making a difference in the life of a child with a disability? Then this volunteer opportunity is for you! This program will link a participant with a volunteer who is enthusiastic and committed to providing support. This program will allow the volunteer and the participant a chance to learn, have fun and meet new people. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, are 14 years of age or older and will not be participating in our Counsellor in Training (C.I.T) program please call 905-727-3123 ext. 3121 or email ncampsall@e-aurora.ca for more information.

Pedestrian Trail System

Basketball Courts

The Town of Aurora is fortunate to have an extensive pedestrian trail system which connects many of its neighbourhood parks, Town Facilities and open space corridors. At present the Town maintains approximately 25 kilometers of trails. Come out and enjoy a leisurely hike through the natural valley land setting of mixed forests, meadows and wetland habitats of the Holland River Valley Trail, designated in 2000 as part of the regional Nokiidaa Trail. This trail is Aurora’s longest trail corridor stretching from Vandorf in the south (just west of Bayview Avenue) all the way up to St. John’s Sideroad at Industrial Parkway North. The trail corridor links municipal facilities such as the Town Hall, the Senior’s Centre and the Aurora Leisure Complex as well as the Aurora Community Arborteum, Sheppards Bush and Lambert Willson Park. Another significant trail corridor is the Willow Farm, Lakeview Trail system, a trail linking parks and linear open space corridors within the forested hills of St. Andrews in northwest Aurora. The topography is very undulating as the trail rises up to one of the highest points elevation within Aurora. All Aurora trails are considered multi-use, with the primary focus being pedestrian hikers. Opportunities also exist for cross country skiers. The majority of our trails are compact gravel surfaces with some asphalt sections through neighbourhood and community parks. Please note that our trails are not groomed or maintained during winter months, and conditions vary widely. Surface conditions can change dramatically during the winter to create potentially hazardous hiking and skiing conditions. All users are advised to respect other trail users, to stay on designated trails and to exercise caution at all times.

Basketball Facilities in the Town of Aurora are either full court double net facilities or half court single net facilities. Basketball courts are not lighted. They can be found in the following park locations:

www.e-aurora.ca

• Ada Johnson Park - 2 half courts • Atkinson Park - 1 half court • Chapman Park - 1 full court • Confederation Park - 2 full courts • Hamilton Park - 1 full court • Hickson Park - 2 half courts • James Lloyd Park - 2 full courts • Seston Park - 1 half court • Summit Park - 1 full court • Tamarac Green - 1 half court • Thompson Park - 1 half court • William Kennedy Park - 1 half court

Tennis Courts All Town of Aurora tennis courts are asphalt surface, regulation size, and are lighted until 11:00pm daily. Tennis courts can be found in the following park locations: • Fleury Park - 4 courts • McMahon Park - 3 courts • Norm Weller Park - 2 courts • Summit Park - 2 courts Please note that the Aurora Community Tennis Club operates out of the McMahon Park Tennis Facilities. The public has equal access to the courts from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, Mondays and Fridays, and from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The public is permitted on the courts at all other times subject to Club Members having priority.

Town of Aurora - Parks & Recreation Services


Parks & Trails Skateboard and BMX Facilities

Hickson Park is designed to facilitate permanent skateboard and BMX activities. Concrete skate board runs include numerous ramps, transitions, stairs, ledges and rails. A separate BMX loop is designed in a grassed area and consists of a series of jumps, log steps, log and plank bridges, a rock and log circuit and a rock and log spider. There is a soft surface course (earth and mulch) geared for beginners and advanced bikers alike. Please note that the BMX and Skateboard facilities in Hickson Park will not be supervised by Town staff.

Water Play Splash Pad Cool off during the warm summer months at one of the two children’s water play areas. They are at Town Park, Aurora’s oldest park, located at Wells and Mosley Streets and Ada Johnson Park, located at Conover Avenue and Hartwell Drive (east of Bayview). The splash pads features tumbling buckets of water and several ground jets for a variety of water play activities on a rubber safety surface. The Splash Pads are open, weather permitting, from midJune through early September. Hours of operation are 9:00 am to 9:00 pm. Please note that the Splash Pads are not supervised by Town staff.

Community Parks & Sports Facilities Enjoy playgrounds, water splash pads, sports fields, skateboarding and a wide variety of other recreational activities in Aurora’s parkettes, neighbourhood and community parks. Our most recent park development is Ada Johnson Park, a neighbourhood park located at Conover Avenue and Hartwell Way. The park features include junior and senior playgrounds, a children’s water play area, as well as generously landscaped passive and free play areas.
