After being closed to the public for months due to the coronavirus pandemic, the doors are back open to the community at the Parkinson Recreation Centre (PRC) in Kelowna.

City staff said services at the drop-in pool, gymnasium and fitness centre are now available.

“We’re pleased to be able to shift to the next phase of our reopening plans. Until now, we’ve only been able to welcome facility members and registered program participants into the facility,” said Mariko Siggers, City of Kelowna’s community and neighbourhood services manager.
