Recreation

Recreation services are essential to active, healthy and connected communities, and contribute enormously to Victoria’s vibrancy and resiliency. 

Crystal Pool and Fitness Centre Opens on Feb. 1 

We are looking forward to welcoming the community back to Crystal Pool and Fitness Centre on February 1. Registration opens on January 28 at 9 a.m.

Due to public health requirements and capacity limits, registration is required. You will be able to book a swim visit, a fitness visit, or register for an upcoming recreation program, such as swim lessons and fitness classes.

We look forward to seeing many familiar faces and welcoming new ones.
