Parkinson Rec celebrating 40 years

The Parkinson Recreation Centre will celebrate 40 years of providing recreational opportunities to the community Thursday, Feb. 28.

“A lot can, and does, change in a city over 40 years but our goal of providing recreational opportunities for the community has not,” says Jim Gabriel, Director of Recreation and Cultural Services.

“While we are celebrating the presence of the Rec Centre in the community, we are also celebrating a community that has been adopting and embracing a healthy, balanced lifestyle.”

Since the facility opened, recreation and cultural programming has expanded into all corners of the City, reaching residents in their local neighbourhoods. Programs such as Park and Play, Dancing in the Park, and Neighbourhood Walks make activity accessible and fun for residents of all ages.

City staff will host a customer appreciation day on Thursday, Feb. 28 as a thank-you to members for their commitment to their health. Residents who are looking to get active, or maybe start on postponed New Year’s resolutions, but are not yet members of the Parkinson Recreation Centre, are encouraged to drop-in and try out the pool (public swim hours) and fitness centre, free of charge.

Residents can sign-up for the City’s e-Subscribe email service to have the Guide delivered to their email inbox, along with other recreation news.

Sign-up by March 31 and be entered to win an iPad. Any resident who has already signed up will be automatically entered. The winner will be contacted and announced mid-April. Hard copies of the guide are still available for pick-up at designated locations.

Registration starts the week of March 5.
