Try free activities during Kingston Gets Active in April
March 28, 2018 -
The City of Kingston is one of many community organizations offering FREE activities in April as part of Kingston Gets Active Month.
"Finding a new, fun way to get active is what Kingston Gets Active Month is all about. Use it as an excuse to explore your options and have free fun with family and friends," says Caroline Livingston, assistant supervisor, recreation programs.
Kingston Gets Active Month offers something for everyone. Skating, exercise for chronic pain and ringette are just some of the activities available. Other programs include swimming, Chair yoga, biking, and even cheerleading and therapeutic Pilates for back pain. While all the activities are free, some require participants to RSVP, so it is a good idea to plan ahead.
