Greater Vernon Recreation Services is bringing back toonie swims at the Vernon Aquatic Centre, offering a low-cost opportunity for residents to get out and get active throughout the winter.
These popular public swim times will begin during the holiday break with the following schedule:
•Saturday, Dec. 24, 2-4 p.m.;
• Saturday, Dec. 31, 2-4 p.m.;
• Saturday, Jan. 7, 5-7 p.m.
Toonie swims will then continue on weekends throughout winter. Each Saturday and Sunday, between 5-7 p.m., public swimming will cost just $2 per person.
“Swimming and playing in the water are good for both your mental and physical health,” said Gary Lefebvre, aquatics manager. “We want to ensure the Vernon Aquatic Centre is accessible to everyone and the toonie swim helps remove financial barriers to participation.”
