Make It a Family Affair at Free Swim and Skate

Family Day is Monday, February 13, 2017 and thanks to the continued support of Comox Valley McDonald’s restaurants, families can enjoy a free everyone welcome swim and skate at the Comox Valley Regional District’s (CVRD) sports and aquatic centres.

The free swim runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the CVRD’s aquatic centre, 377 Lerwick Road in Courtenay. The free skate takes place from 1:15 to 3:15 p.m. at the CVRD’s sports centre, 3001 Vanier Drive in Courtenay. It’s recommended to come early as free skate rentals are limited.

Staff from the local McDonald’s will be generously providing coffee, hot chocolate and cookies at both facilities with optional donations to Ronald McDonald House BC.


Bring the family for a fun free skate at the sports centre, or a free swim at the aquatic centre this Family Day.

More information about the event, as well as sports and aquatic centres program schedules, can be found at www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/rec .
