Recreation

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

Registration is OPEN for Summer Programs

We're having fun and keeping it safe all summer long with City of Victoria recreation programs. Registration is now open for all programs:

We're keeping outdoor fitness going at Royal Athletic Park this summer, including Zumba, boot camps and yoga, plus outdoor spin classes on the Crystal Pool sun patio. Join us for these fun and safe open-air fitness experiences.

We also have an exciting line-up of summer camps available. View the 2021 summer camps flyer:

BC's Restart

UPDATE: June 30, 2021 - We’re excited about B.C.’s move to Step 3 of the four-step Restart Plan to gradually and safely return to activities. We are seeking further guidance from provincial sports, recreation and health organizations so we can update our program plans.

Our focus continues to be on the health and safety of our staff and participants and we want to thank everyone for continuing to follow public health recommendations to keep themselves and others safe. Our current guidelines and protocols will remain in place, and we ask for your patience as we roll out updated programs and service delivery plans.
