City of Powell River releases fall active living guide

Registration opens for parks, recreation and culture department programs
City of Powell River has launched its fall active living guide, offering diverse programs from aquatic lessons and Latin-American cooking to fitness routines, while promoting a healthier lifestyle for all residents.

City of Powell River’s parks, recreation and culture department has ushered in the fall season with its latest digital fall active living guide. With registration now open, the guide showcases a wide array of programs aimed at promoting a healthy, active and culturally enriched lifestyle for all residents.

Aquatic program supervisor Tami Wood provided details about the aquatics section.
“Preschool swim lessons have been expanded to six days a week, with a fresh slot now available on Sunday afternoons from 4 to 5:30 pm,” explains Wood.

She says it’s important for parents to register their children based on swim levels matching their skill set and badge level.

“For the safety of all participants, children aged three and above must only advance once they’ve mastered essential skills and earned their respective badges.”

Adults haven’t been left out, either, with two available options for adult learn-to-swim lessons and special sessions for experienced swimmers. Plus, water polo enthusiasts can drop in on Monday evenings from 7 to 8 pm.

From Latin flavours to skating skills, sport and recreation coordinator Alex Craig has unveiled fall programs and is excited about the new offerings coming up this fall.

“The Latin American Cooking Program is back by popular demand, ready to immerse attendees in the rich flavours and histories of Central and South American dishes,” says Craig.

He also introduced the new Zumbini program for young children, designed to bolster various developmental aspects in a fun, high-energy environment.

Professional development day camps have also been launched, offering students an exciting break from their school routine on specific dates.

Returning to the ice, popular programs such as Rec Skate and Learn to Skate Better are set to make a comeback. The programs target young enthusiasts, helping them to master fundamental skating skills with guidance from expert instructors.

Meanwhile, health and fitness program coordinator Christine Creer is encouraging residents to rejuvenate their fitness routines.

“From strength and core to Nia Dance and Zumba, our comprehensive drop-in fitness schedule this fall is designed to cater to varied interests,” says Creer.

The focus isn’t just on physical fitness.

“Yoga enthusiasts will be thrilled with our expanded offerings, including Power Yoga, Mindful Vinyasa Flow Yoga and several other specialized yoga classes tailored to specific needs,” she adds.

For those who are eager to register or simply seeking more details, schedules and the latest updates, they can visit the official website at or call Powell River Recreation Complex at 604.485.2891.

Anyone interested in testing out a drop-in fitness class can do so during Free Try It Week, which takes place from September 5 to 9.

Social media aficionados can stay tuned to the city’s official Facebook and Instagram pages for real-time announcements and updates.

In this season of change, City of Powell River is inviting everyone to embrace a healthier, happier and more active lifestyle through its carefully curated programs.
