MAYORS MESSAGE: Spring and summer are just around the corner, and now is a great opportunity to plan activities for you and your family to be active and engaged in the warmer weather. Grimsby is home to many recreation programs, parks, and trails that you will discover in our Leisure Guide. Take the opportunity this spring to make a commitment to a healthier lifestyle with our newly developed fitness centre memberships, which include unlimited access to the weight room and all fitness classes at the Peach King Centre. Once things warm up, visit the Grimsby Lions Community Pool where lane swims and our new masters swim program can help you achieve your goals. Our popular camp programs and swimming lessons will be back this year so be sure to browse our offerings and register early as space fills up quickly! Be sure to visit Grimsby’s West End to see Casablanca Beach Park and take a walk along the Waterfront trail for great views of Lake Ontario. Are you curious about the future of Parks, Recreation and Culture in Grimsby? Visit our website to see the results of our Master Plan, which shows you where we are, and where we are going, to meet the recreational needs of Grimsby Residents. Finally, be sure to visit our new online community calendar at www.events. grimsby.ca. This Calendar contains up to date information about Town special events, and even allows local community groups to post their events so that you can keep up to date on all the great things happening in Town.

our best to make level adjustments if deemed necessary, however it is restricted by class availability. We ask that parents only register for one session of swimming lessons at a time. This is to ensure that all residents get opportunity for at least one session. It is also not recommended to register for a second set of lessons until you know what level to register for, as changing levels can be difficult during our busy sessions.
