The Grand Forks Aquatic Centre will be closing for its annual maintenance shutdown from Saturday, Aug. 16 to Saturday, Sept. 6. The fall schedule will start Sunday, Sept. 7 from 1 to 5 p.m.

All our aquatic staff will be taking a well-deserved break during this time.

There will be no classes for the week of Aug. 18 to Aug. 22.

There is just one session remaining for the Summer Parent and Tot Swim and Play program. Come join other families on Tuesday evening, Aug. 12 for supervised fun, games and activities from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. This program has been sponsored by Success By Six and GFREC.

There are only two Toonie night sessions remaining for the summer. Bring the family out and enjoy the aquatic centre from 6 to 8 p.m. for just $2. Children two and under swim for free.

GFREC is gearing up for a great fall season. We are inviting any organizations to take part in our Youth Open House on Thursday, Sept. 4  from 6 to 7:45 p.m.

This is a great time to showcase what your group offers the community and to also schedule your fall registrations. There is no charge to book a table but you must call to register.
