Clarington Walks

As a result of the Provincewide Shutdown, the Municipality of Clarington is closing its recreation facilities and postponing our winter programs for at least 28 days beginning Saturday, December 26, 2020. We will continue to monitor updates from the Province and re-evaluate when programs can resume following all Provincial guidelines. Registration for winter programs will continue throughout the shutdown. Learn more
