The Oshawa Civic Dome and three city trails are temporarily closed due to tree damage from last weekend’s storm.

The Civic Dome, which is located at the Civic Recreation Complex and is the home for tennis and other indoor sports, suffered damage to its roof and is closed until further notice.

A contractor was on site Tuesday to assess the impact.

As a result of this closure, all rentals and bookings for the indoor track, tennis courts and squash courts at the Civic Recreation Complex are cancelled until repairs can be made.

For more information on the work being done at the Civic Dome contact the Civic Recreation Complex at (905) 436-5454.

Meanwhile, the three trails in Oshawa will be closed for safety reasons until clean-up efforts can be completed.

  • Harmony Trail, from Rossland Road to Hillcroft Street
  • Oshawa Trail, from Bloor Street to Erie Street
  • Michael Starr Trail, from Beatrice Street to Mary Street

Forestry staff in Oshawa and around Durham Region are still busy clearing downed tree limbs and branches on other municipal trails, parks and boulevards as well, with the clean-up efforts expected to continue for several weeks.

To support residents in the safe disposal of debris caused by the storm Durham Region’s Waste Management Facilities are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. until Saturday and will also accept any leaf and yard waste that is dropped off until June 6.

Additionally, the typical fee for Durham residents using the facilities will be waived for leaf and yard waste to support the storm recovery.

Residents can also take advantage of their curbside leaf and yard waste collection. Yard waste collection may be delayed due to increased volumes.

  • Use paper bags or clearly labeled, returnable open-top containers, no heavier than 20 kg (44 lbs); and,
  • Secure brush/twigs in bundles no longer than 1.2 metres in length.
