Get Active In Essex

(ESSEX, ON) – During March Break, from the 13th through to the 17th, the Town of Essex is offering a variety of family-friendly activities which will help get you moving. Regular programs will take place as usual, with the addition of more recreational skate and swim programs.

“We invite everyone to take advantage of the many programs and physical activities being offered during March Break,” said Doug Sweet, the director of community services.

Family swims and daily recreational swims are being offered at the Essex Recreation Complex, with a free rec swim from 2:30pm until 4:00pm on March 16. The free swim is sponsored by Healthy Kids Community Challenge.

While March 19 is the last day for public skating, you still have an opportunity to travel many miles on your blades during March Break.

Daily parent and tot skates, shinny, and public skating programs are scheduled, with free rec skates from 3:30pm to 5:00pm on March 17, at both the Essex Centre Sports Complex and the Harrow and Colchester South Community Centre.

The free skate is sponsored in Essex Centre by SX Video and PC Connection and by Xplornet, and in Harrow Centre by HKCC. These free skating programs will include giveaways and draws for Essex program credits.

SX Video and Xplornet are also sponsoring the final rec skate in Essex Centre from 12:00noon to 1:30pm on March 19.
