National Health and Fitness Day: June 1

National Health and Fitness Day: June 1

In order to celebrate National Health and Fitness Day, we are offering free access to City-run aquatic and recreation facilities during regular operating hours.

Celebrated on the first Saturday in June, National Health and Fitness Day provides an opportunity to embrace healthy physical activity. It is included in the National Health and Fitness Act, which became law at the end of 2014.

Several pools and recreation facilities will be available for residents to visit and there is no need to pre-register. Public entry requirements and capacity restrictions will still apply.

You can also pick up an activity tracker from any City-run pool or recreation facility on June 1 and join the Winnipeg 150 Fitness Challenge. Track your activity for the month of June and hand your tracker in at the end of the month for a chance to win a prize.

On top of free access for National Health and Fitness Day, the City will also offer free swim times at all pools. There are also Loonie/Toonie swim times for even more affordable fun and fitness options. The hours are subject to change.
