Town recreation staff will offer plenty of exercise alternatives

The Town is encouraging patrons affected by the Aquatics Centre annual maintenance closure to try some of its “land-based” fitness programs. The Aquatics Centre closure will take place from Tuesday, September 5 to Sunday, September 24.

Morning “aqua-fitters” may be interested in group fitness and falls prevention exercise classes on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. at the Friendship Centre. These classes are low impact and offered free of charge through funding provided by the Local Health Integration Network.   

Yoga, chair yoga and Exercise More, a group class for ages 50 and up, all have sessions running during the maintenance shutdown. Skating programs also begin the week of September 10, with Friendship Centre members now eligible for discounted admission during noon hour or adult ice times.

More details can be found in the Town of St. Marys Fall and Winter Recreation and Leisure Program Guide, available online at or most municipal facilities. Questions may also be directed to the Recreation Department at 519-284-2160 or
