Council made the proclamation at Tuesday’s meeting. The motion also included an encouragement to “recognize and celebrate the benefits derived year round from quality public and private recreation and parks resources at the local, regional and provincial levels.”
The national initiative is being recognized in a number of ways in the city. As of June 13, the free Friday swims will move to the Phyllis Dewar Outdoor Pool.
The water parks will open June 14 for the summer.
The city is also encouraging people to use public transit, bike or walk to work for exercise. Drivers and cyclists are reminded to share the road safely.
