The Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation’s new passport to recreation has proven to be extremely popular since it was launched on July 8. In just a week,  over 10,000 Vancouver residents signed up for the OneCard and now enjoy universal access city-wide to Park Board recreation facilities.

The OneCard gives local residents access to the entire network of Park Board pools, rinks and fitness centres across the city – regardless of income or where they live.

“We’re extremely pleased by the popularity of our new OneCard and the tremendous benefit now being enjoyed by over 10,000 residents,” said Park Board Commissioner Niki Sharma. “Already in the first week, people of all ages and incomes are getting active at facilities across the city with our new system-wide pass.”

The customizable OneCard can be loaded with a 10-visit pass or Flexipass options, and includes a built-in 50 percent Leisure Access Program subsidy for qualified residents with financial barriers. 

Local residents signing up for the OneCard before September 30 can still take advantage of a promotion to receive three free drop-in visits to try out Park Board pools, rinks and fitness centres throughout Vancouver.

The OneCard is currently available at 23 Park Board-operated facilities across the city, where it can be used right away. It is intended that the OneCard will launch across the entire recreation network including all community centres on September 1, 2013.
