Free Saturday Swims

Canadian Western Bank Continues to Support Free Swims at the CVRD’s Aquatic Centre This Summer

There will be free swimming on Saturday afternoons this summer at the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD)'s aquatic centre thanks to the continued sponsorship from Canadian Western Bank.

The free swims will begin on Saturday, July 6, and run through to Saturday, August 10, from 1-4: 30 p.m. There will be no free swim on the long weekend, Saturday, August 3. Everyone is welcome on a first-come, first-served basis, restricted only by pool bathing load capacity. The wave pool, slides, sauna and hot tub will be open, as will the fitness centre.

"Canadian Western Bank has been a great supporter of these free swims year after year," said Jennifer Zbinden, the CVRD's manager of recreation services. "They recognize the value of the benefits of health, wellness, accessibility and community spirit which fits with our goal to bring people to our facilities that may not otherwise have the chance. And this is also a way of giving back to our regular patrons.”
