Filming of Netflix series temporarily closes Gordon Head Rec Centre


The Gordon Head Recreation Centre will be closed to the public on Tuesday as a film crew continue their production for a Netflix series.

Maid, an adaptation of a popular memoir, has been in production in locations around Victoria since September.

While crews shoot footage at the recreation centre, the facility will be closed to the public until Wednesday.

The closure includes the Gordon Head Lawn Bowling Club facility, main parking lot, and gravel parking lot beside the Lawn Bowling Club.

The District of Saanich says some programs have been moved to the Bert Richman building and the Annex, and participants have been notified.

“Saanich’s Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department is excited to host the film production which will help offset operating costs during the pandemic,” the District stated.

“Thank you for your patience and support during this closure.”

Production of the first season of Maid is set to wrap in March, with a fall premiere date expected to follow.
