Child & Youth Supervision
The safety and well-being of children and youth at the facilities are a priority. Children 8 years and under must be actively supervised at all times while in the facility by a responsible person 12 years or older. If issues or incidents arise, parents or guardians will be contacted.
Users must be 16 years or older to access the following areas: the Canadian Natural indoor walking/running track, the Cenovus Fitness & Wellness Centre, the boxing area, and the steam rooms.
Youth aged 12 to 15 who have successfully completed the Youth Introduction to the Cenovus Fitness & Wellness Centre or Access Fitness courses are authorized to use the Cenovus Fitness & Wellness Centre and Canadian Natural indoor walking/running track without supervision. This excludes the boxing area and steam rooms.
We are committed to integrating all residents into our programs and services. The Bold Center is fully accessible, with an elevator to all three levels of the facility. We continue to partner with community liaisons and support services so that everyone, regardless of their physical or cognitive abilities, can participate in activities at the Bold Center.
Support workers are not required to pay for admission when accompanying clients to use recreation facilities.
Guests accessing areas that require paid admission will receive a wristband from Guest Services. Guests must wear and keep wristbands visible while in the Bold Center’s proof-of-payment areas.
Wristbands will be required for re-entry if a guest wishes to access the facility at various times throughout the day. In some cases, wristbands may be issued for participation in registered programs. If you do not have a wristband, you will be asked to pay or leave.
Pay to Play
Everyone who wishes to access any of the leisure opportunities provided at the Bold Center must pay an admission fee. Admission may be in the form of a paid membership or daily drop-in fee. Guests may be required to provide proof of age to qualify for special membership and drop-in discounts.
