City helps Kingston get active in April
March 31, 2014 -
Kingston Gets Active is inviting residents to more than 800 FREE activities in the region scheduled for April – many of them hosted at City facilities.
"We have activities for everyone to try: Nordic Walking at the Memorial Centre, a community garden tour at Centre 70, Physical Literacy training for parents at the library, cardio classes at Beechgrove – and lots of swimming, skating, soccer and other opportunities for the kids," says Denita Arthur, Assistant Supervisor, Recreation Programs (Community Development). She says Kingston Gets Active Month is a great way to "try before you buy" an activity.
Organized by Canadian Sports for Life Kingston, the City is just one of many participating Kingston Gets Active Month organizations and businesses offering opportunities to encourage Kingstonians to try a variety of healthy, fun and enriching activities.
Other activities on offer include: roller derby, speed-skating, tennis, bowling, kickboxing, play groups, workshops, martial arts, PRIDE Sports Kingston, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Line-dancing, and two Get Active Fairs (in French and English).
You may drop-in to most of the activities, but some require registration. The extremely full Kingston Gets Active calendar is available at http://www.kingstongetsactive.ca/?page_id=3721.
