As of April 19, 2021, all adult indoor low intensity group classes such as fitness, yoga, and martial arts will be paused until May 25, 2021, in order to reduce transmission of COVID-19 as directed by BC’s Provincial Health Officer.

The following programs will continue to operate:

Effective May 8, 2021, customers will be able to withdraw online at vanrec.ca from all Park Board fitness, pool, and rink sessions with a scheduled start date of May 11 and onward.
