Instead of a printed program, the fall and winter brochure for West Hartford Leisure Services will move to an online-only format.
To provide up-to-date programming information, the West Hartford Leisure Services Fall/Winter brochure will be digital only. No print copies will be mailed to households or available for distribution at town facilities. The online format allows Leisure Services to keep customers informed of program changes or cancellations necessitated by COVID-19 requirements.
“This online version for Fall/Winter 2020/21 allows us to update safety restrictions, program cancellations and critical information as state and local government recommendations evolve over the next few months,” stated Helen Rubino-Turco, director of Leisure Services and Social Services. “The changing landscape of the coronavirus pandemic requires us to be flexible. Our efforts are focused on offering safe programs outdoors, indoors and online. We will utilize public health safety protocols while we maintain our commitment to provide our community with high quality, affordable recreation opportunities in safe facilities and well-maintained parks. Residents can also rely on our compassionate customer service during this extraordinarily challenging environment.”
Some Leisure Services facilities are open to the public with restrictions, including Veterans Memorial Skating Rink and Westmoor Park.
Others remain closed to the public or are open for specific, limited programs, such as Elmwood Community Center.
Both senior center branches remain closed.
Cornerstone Aquatics Center, which is undergoing a significant locker room renovation project, will open to members in a limited way in September.
The department expects to return to a printed version of the brochure at some point in the future.
