Master Plan Master Plan - Parks, Recreation & Culture Our Mission

Working in partnership with the community, we create opportunities for leisure activities, facilitate sustainable quality facilities, and support healthy lifestyles for all ages and abilities. We are a centre of excellence for our facilities and programs.

Our Vision

We are a community that provides an inclusive and sustainable system of experiences that celebrates the Town’s heritage, culture and natural landscape while promoting a healthy active lifestyle. Approved in 2018, our Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan includes objectives and suggested initiatives for the next 15 years, 2019 – 2032. Principle themes include: Healthy Community | Regional Centre | Sustainable Municipal Operations. Plan objectives that are completed or in progress include: • Parks and playgrounds assessment tool created. Assessment of parks to occur by October 2019. • Program and facility usage statistics being tracked monthly and reported quarterly. • Support and assist with Cultural Plan completion and implementation. The full master plan is available at www.hanover.ca/parks-and-recreation-master-plan Key to the implementation of our master plan initiatives is our community! Our ability to provide diverse programming relies heavily on community organizations and third-party program providers. The recommendations included in our master plan are reliant on maintaining and enhancing existing relationships and developing community capacity as the primary source of achieving healthy community goals.

Moving Forward with New Programs Moving Forward We are pleased to support the development of new aquatic programs and offer a refresh with new opportunities. This keeps our aquatic programs appealing and interesting! We are implementing new physical activity programs with approved Government of Ontario grant funding. Our FloatFit is an example of a unique physical activity program that attracts new pool patrons and provides different alternatives for existing participants. The reality with implementing new initiatives and supporting community programs within our existing pool schedule is that schedule revisions and changes will be necessary. The potential to attract new pool patrons who will experience physical and social benefits, as well as the opportunity to offer unique programs is positive.

To accommodate program development, our pool patrons may note changes and revisions in our public program schedule. This may include but is not limited to the following: • Shared pool by multiple programs occurring at the same time • Schedule revisions • Registered versus drop-in programs due to limited or specialized equipment Cooperation will be required by program organizers, participants and instructors moving forward. We anticipate some growing pains, however, flexibility, understanding and cooperation will be necessary as we strive to alleviate reduction of programs or times to create pool time in our facility. As these programs evolve, we will be open to feedback to be considered as they move forward. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. We look forward to the centre of excellence opportunities these new programs offer as they support healthy lifestyles while working in partnership with our community members.

Fall Water Safety • Wear a lifejacket whenever you are in a boat. • Most drownings occur within 15m of shore - wearing a lifejacket alone can save your life. • Lifejackets aren't one size fits all. Check your proper fit.

Help Reduce Pool Closures A pool fouling will cause a closure of our pools anywhere from 1-24 hours. Here are some healthy habits you can take to stop the spread of germs and reduce the number of closures in our pools: • Take your kids on bathroom breaks or check diapers often. • The use of a swim diaper is mandatory to enter the pool if a child is not yet fully toilet trained. • Do not swim if you are feeling sick or have been sick in the past 24 hours. This is especially important for children in diapers. • Wash your body thoroughly with soap and water before swimming. Thank you for your assistance in keeping our pool clean for all to enjoy!

Aquatic Programs Instructors & Assistant Instructors

All classes will be taught by a fully-certified Lifesaving Society Instructor. Our Instructors have spent over 200 hours taking courses and volunteering in Aquatic Instructional Programs to prepare them to teach your children.

First Lesson

In our effort 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 session. This will help your swim instructor tailor their classes to effectively meet the needs of each child.

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