Douglas Park Community Association is pleased to resume programming this Fall, in a limited capacity with a gradual rollout over the proceeding weeks of identified programs. This approach will allow for the operations team to adapt to the unpredictable challenges COVID19 has and may impose on the Centre moving forward. Priority services that were identified throughout the network include children, youth, and senior user groups; that being said, we are ecstatic to announce registration is now open!
