in the centre of it all



What is the R Zone?

The R Zone is a zero tolerance operating procedure that applies to all Municipality of Middlesex Centre recreational facilities, community centres, parks and programs. The R Zone procedure enforces zero tolerance of violence, vandalism and inappropriate behaviour for participants and the public.

What does the R Zone Mean?

The “R” in the R Zone logo stands for Respect and Responsibility. Respect for yourself; Respect for Others; and Responsibility for Your Actions. The logo will serve as a reminder to staff and the public that the operating procedure is in effect and applies to everyone – coaches, parents, players, performers, audiences and visitors.


The goal of the R Zone operating procedure is to improve the safety and leisure environment in all our municipal recreation and community centres, facilities, parks and programs. Community organizations, residents, visitors and municipal staff will work together to promote respect and responsibility – improving the safety, appearance and environment of our community.
