City Offers Free Activities for Recreation and Parks Month

June is Recreation and Parks month and the City of Windsor is giving a gift to all city residents.

It is offering free activities all month according to Executive Director of Recreation and Culture Ray Mensour.

He says it's the second year for the program which provides a wide range of free activities.

"Every day of the week we're offering a different free program, which ranges from free access to our fitness centres to free swimming or to free skating at the WFCU Centre," he says.

Mensour says the program is still evolving.

"We've also tried to change it up a little bit," says Mensour.  "We hope we get a lot of uptake this year and get more feedback so we can continue to improve this for years to come."

A complete schedule of free events can be found on the city's website.
