The annual maintenance closure at the Aquatic Centre is complete and the facility is now open and ready for new adventures.

New to the pool this fall are four large Aflex inflatable toys. These toys are suitable for all ages and a variety of games and activities.

The Rocker and George are fun for two to four people. The Aqua Joust and Barrels of Fun are much larger, for more people and so big that only one toy can be in the pool at a time! The aquatic staff has been busy planning and organizing activities for the evening public swims that will give everyone an opportunity to play and try the new inflatable toys.

This coming weekend is very busy in our community with the Fall Fair at the curling rink. Minor Hockey and Figure Skating are at the arena and public skating starts on Sundays 3:30 to 4:45 p.m. and Wednesdays 7 to 8 p.m.

The annual Terry Fox Run is Sunday, Sept. 15, race start/finish and registration forms at the Aquatic and Fitness Centre.

The recreation office has been busy with registrations for puddle jumpers, swim lessons, yoga, fitness, and helping families organize for all activities.

Girl Guides, Boys Scouts, hockey, figure skating, Orca Swim Club and other groups and organizations are taking registrations and planning for the fall.

There is still time to plan and get involved in the many groups and activities in Summerland.

Get out and get active in our great community.

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.
