The City of Richmond has got the deal of the summer.
While 20 bucks doesn’t go that far these days, you can get a Summer Swim Skate Pass and still have a loonie to spare.
The $19 pass, for children and youth aged five to 16, is good from June 28 through Sept. 3. It provides unlimited swimming at Watermania, Minoru Aquatic Centre, South Arm Outdoor Pool and Steveston Outdoor Pool as well as unlimited skating at Richmond Ice Centre. Youth 13 to 16 can also access the fitness centre at Watermania.
“This is a fantastic pass for children and youth to be able to access our arena and aquatic facilities for a fun-filled summer,” said Nicole Tjepkema, community facilities co-ordinator.
The passes can be purchased starting June 1 at any arena or aquatic facility in Richmond.
In 2017, the city sold 2,583 passes with almost 20,000 visits to its facilities.
