Athleticism is more than leaping over a hurdle and drop-kicking a computer after it beats you in chess. Be a good sport with this Groupon.
$15 for Five Full-Day Recreation-Centre Visits ($32.50 Value)
Customers who buy this Groupon receive a five-pass punch card that grants its holder drop-in access to the District of Saanich Parks and Recreation Department's centres, including Saanich Commonwealth Place, Pearkes, Gordon Head, Arts Centre at Cedar Hill, and the Cedar Hill Rec Centre. Each centre packs its own fun punch. At Pearkes, two huge ice rinks and a strength-training centre beef up burgeoning hockey players, and a teen activity centre and public library pump up their minds. Gordon Head takes pride in its UV-filtered and chlorinated pools, and Cedar Hill Rec Centre beckons to tennis and squash players with four courts each. The Arts Centre shows exhibitions and galleries, and it hosts classes on painting and ceramics as well as open-studio sessions.
Additional rental fee applies to tennis courts (up to $25/hour) and squash courts ($9.50/person for 45 minutes of squash).
Groupon holders can also receive $15 off the price of a 6-month or annual pass; all centers offer discounted rates for students, seniors, families, and children.
Saanich Commonwealth Place
Saanich Commonwealth Place folds nicely into the District of Saanich Parks and Recreation Department's luxurious recreational centres, which together create a well-rounded outlet for creative and physical activity. Each is unique in its own way, with Pearkes boasting 31,000 square feet of ice rink for skaters and Gordon Head's UV-filtered pools hosting hundreds of thousands of laps swum. Galleries exhibit local artists at the Cedar Hill Arts Centre, and the accompanying recreation centre’s badminton, volleyball, and table tennis have seen more volleys than Tom Hanks at the Castaway reunion. Regardless of its defining feature, each centre seeks to bring the community together with enlightening and enriching fitness and arts programs.
