An easy and affordable way to take part in parks and recreation drop-in services has arrived in Armstrong and Spallumcheen.
Armstrong Spallumcheen Parks and Recreation is introducing “affordable access passes,” launched Wednesday, March 1, to qualifying individuals in the area.
The pass is touted as a way to remove barriers of participation in basic parks and recreation drop-in services such as the outdoor pool, ice skating and roller skating.
People who are eligible could receive a 75 per cent discount on select activities and free entry for caregivers.
Qualifying individuals or families include:
• Persons or families receiving regular income assistance benefits
• Persons or families with a disability
• Persons or families with persistent multiple barriers
More information about the access pass program is available by calling the Armstrong Spallumcheen Parks and Recreation Commission administration office at 250-546-9456 ext. 200 or by stopping by in person at 3351 Park Dr., in Armstrong.
