Welcome to ACC Leisure Services


The Leisure Services Department is carefully monitoring COVID-19 conditions.  Here are some of the things currently in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure and spread:

  • Adjusted hours of parks and facilities to allow for staff to work in alternate schedules 
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting measures, focusing on high-touch areas
  • Face masks to be worn
  • No large groups or gatherings
  • Social distancing required
  • Temperature checks for staff and participants of in-person programs

All parks and facilities are open, except Morton Theatre. 

Due to COVID-19, the Leisure Services Department may determine that programs need to be cancelled or adapted to a virtual activity. Registrants will be contacted.
