Play Frisbee with family

Pickle ball outside for now

Pickle ball will remain at the Barbara Ann tennis courts until the weather forces the group inside. At such time, the group will move to Hutton school gym on Monday evenings from 7:15 – 9:15 p.m.

Adults can learn to swim

There is always time in your life to learn new skills to help open doors for new recreational activities.

Adult Learn to Swim programs are designed to help adults overcome the fear of water. GFREC will be offering a fall session on Tuesdays evenings from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. starting Oct. 6 for four weeks. Pre-registration is required by the end of this week.

Scuba a life-long skill

Scuba is a great life-long skill which you can make a career in the future or just enjoy the pleasure of the world beneath the water in the tropical ocean.

Serpent Aquatic instructor Sheldon Boyd from Summerland will be offering scuba for children and adults on Sunday, Oct. 25. Pre-registration is required by Monday, Oct. 19.
