City to Allow Free Access to Fitness Facilities, Pools


The City of Winnipeg is allowing free access to all city-run fitness facilities and indoor pools on Saturday, June 7.

To mark National Health and Fitness Day, the public can enjoy services offered at the facilities free of charge during normal operating hours.

“I encourage all Winnipeggers to enjoy use of our facilities on National Health and Fitness Day, and help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke through physical activity every day,” Mayor Sam Katz said in a release.

The one-day initiative is meant to increase the rates of physical activity in communities to combat rises in heart disease and obesity. The move is supported by the Heart and Stroke Foundation in Manitoba.
