Calgary, AB,

Your guide to adventure is here – spring and summer Recreation guide on stands now

The City of Calgary‘s Spring & Summer Recreation Program Guide is on stands now to help Calgarians have their most adventurous season yet.

“Getting stuck in routine can mean missing out on great opportunities available right here in our own city,” says Amanda Cole, Recreation program specialist. “We offer more than 12,000 registered programs – but classes like hula hoop, triathlon training and sailing lessons are some of the more unique and not well-known offerings. There’s really something for all Calgarians, of all ages, to explore.”

Features in this issue include: rock climbing at Beltline Aquatic & Fitness Centre’s new outdoor climbing wall, summer day camps and new golf 12-Packs. And while the guide is full of fun and different programs to try, classic favourites like swimming lessons, gymnastics and yoga are also included.

“It’s about staying active, but more importantly having fun while doing so,” adds Cole. “When the warm weather arrives, Calgarians can do their favourite activities plus new ones they’ve always wanted to try.”

The Spring & Summer Recreation Program Guide is online and on stands at all City of Calgary Recreation facilities, and registration begins Feb. 23, 2015, for programs and day camps.
