Free Saturday Swims Sponsored by Canadian Western Bank

There will be free swimming on Saturday afternoons again 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 5, and run through to Saturday, August 9, from 1-4:30 p.m. There will be no free swim on the long weekend, Saturday, August 2. 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 well as the fitness centre.

"We are thrilled to be able to offer these free swims to the community again this year and we value the continued support from Canadian Western Bank,” said Jennifer Zbinden, manager of recreation services. "This is a great opportunity to have fun with the whole family in a healthy and active way.”
