June full of activities for Recreation and Parks Month


June is recognized as Recreation and Parks Month in Ontario, and this year’s theme is Get Active. In addition to the hundreds of recreational activities and programs the city has to offer residents, Barrie also has 300 hectares of scenic parkland to enjoy.

“Access to recreation and parks is a basic human need that helps foster personal health, strong communities and social inclusion,” said Steve Lee-Young, Recreation and Culture Programs Manager. “Whether it’s playing volleyball at Centennial Park, taking a fitness class at one of our centers, or cooling off at the Lampman Lane Splash Pad, Barrie offers many incredible opportunities to become asset.

The city has created an activity calendar that gives residents the opportunity to play every day throughout the month of June. All Recreation and Parks Month activities are walk-in and regular fees apply. Visit barrie.ca/DropIns for schedule and barrie.ca/RecFees for more information on recreation program fees.

May 31 to June 30 is also recognized as Bike Month, which is a time for people to try riding a bike for the first time, learn new skills, and have fun. It’s a chance to explore your neighborhood by bike, celebrate cycling and introduce cycling to the next generation of cyclists.
