Fitness activities plentiful

As we begin the month of April, spring is definitely here.

As we begin the month of April, spring is definitely here. Hopefully we have put away our snow shovels and can now concentrate on our lawns and gardens.

It is important to keep our lawn and garden tools in good working order but also our bodies in good shape too.

Summerland has many recreation and fitness opportunities from walking and running our many trails and pathways to our playing fields, golf courses and indoor pool.

There are many planned and scheduled activities that you can join and you will feel so good – and your yard maintenance will become easier as you become fitter.

Spring is also the time for all of the Youth outdoor minor sports to begin. Minor baseball and girl’s softball have had their registration nights.

South Okanagan Youth Soccer now has all their registration online: It’s not too late to get registered for the Summerland Slo-Pitch league as they start their season at Dale Meadows.

Dale Meadows park will be a hub of activity on Sunday, April 21 for the seventh annual Earth Day Celebration, activities are scheduled from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Displays, information and plantings are the planned activities sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Dept., Summerland Environmental Science Group, Summerland Asset Development Initiative and the Okanagan and Similkameen Invasive Species Society.

For more information consult your recreation guide available online at

Spring is here and everything is turning green – bye, bye winter.

Brenda Ingram is the Programs and Facilities Manager for the District of Summerland and proud to be a long-time resident of this great community.
