Free Family Day activities planned for Terrace Sportsplex

This Family Day Terrace residents will have free access to a number of activities at the Terrace Sportsplex and Aquatic Centre!

As part of a province-wide program, the provincial government will be sponsoring Family Day activities at recreation facilities, art galleries and museums over the long weekend.

“B.C. Family Day is a chance to take a break and spend time making memories with your family,” said Tourism, Arts and Culture minister Lisa Beare. “We understand what this day means to British Columbians. That’s why we have invested more funding this year so that everyone has the opportunity to take part in free community activities with their loved ones.”

This year Family Day takes place on Monday, February 18, after the provincial government last year changed the date of the public holiday from the second to the third Monday in February to align with the other provinces in Canada.

“Bring your family and friends for a fun time to celebrate Family Day. The lazy river, spray features, diving board, hot pool, and saunas are available,” reads the City of Terrace’s website.
