Information updated at of March 23, 2020 at 6:00 p.m.

To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, the District continues to adjust our response accordingly. Please be advised that, effective immediately, the following outdoor recreational facilities are closed until further notice:

  • All Basketball Courts
  • Henderson Par 3 Golf Course
  • Outdoor Fitness Equipment at Henderson Park
  • All Pickleball Courts
  • Skatepark

The District has undertaken these additional measures to further support the directives of the Provincial Health Officer, particularly around physically separating from others outside of your home by a minimum of 2 metres, or 6 feet to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Physical distancing is critical and requires 100% compliance. We want to remind the public that this is not a suggestion, but an order from the Provincial Health Officer and we all need to do our part by ensuring that we stay 2 metres apart from others at all times.

The District of Oak Bay has released a new service level update for the COVID-19. Please note that these service levels are subject to change as the situation evolves. 

If you have any questions about services, please contact the appropriate department or facilities. Customer service contact information is available on the District’s website at We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we all work together and do our part to keep our community safe.

Be kind, be calm, be responsible, and be safe!
