There will be free swimming on Saturday afternoons this summer at the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD)’s aquatic centre thanks to a sponsorship from Canadian Western Bank.

The free swims will begin on Saturday, July 7, 2012 and run through to Saturday, August 11, 2012 from 1-4:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome on a first-come, first-served basis, restricted only by pool bathing load capacity. The wave pool, slides, sauna and hot tub will be open as will the fitness centre.

“We are proud that the Canadian Western Bank continues to support these free swims year after year,” said Darcy Walters, the CVRD’s senior manager of recreation facilities. “They recognize the value of the benefits of health, wellness, accessibility and community spirit.”

The Saturday, August 4th free swim will be cancelled due to the Blue Devils swim meet.
