Since it was launched on July 8, over 20,000 Vancouver residents have signed up for the Park Board’s OneCard granting universal access to city-wide Park Board recreation facilities.

“It’s amazing that Vancouverites have responded so quickly and positively to system-wide access to their recreation facilities,” said Park Board Commissioner Niki Sharma. “With the OneCard thousands of people are exploring and enjoying the entire network of Park Board pools, rinks and fitness centres across the city.”

Residents in all neighborhoods are picking up the universal passport to recreation. It has been extremely popular at indoor and outdoor pools during the hot weather. The locations where the most people have signed up for the OneCard are:

  • Hillcrest: 4,040 
  • Vancouver Aquatic Centre and outdoor pools: 3,765 
  • Killarney: 1,879 
  • Renfrew:  1,581 
  • Kitsilano: 1,143 

The customizable OneCard is free, and 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.  

If you sign up for the OneCard before September 30 you 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 facilities across the city. It is intended that the OneCard will launch across the entire recreation network including all community centres on September 1, 2013.
