The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) is opening the aquatic centre doors on the night of Saturday, May 3 for a free pool party for teens as part of the annual provincial Youth Week celebrations.

The free swim is open to youth 13 – 17 years of age and will run from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. There will be games and prizes, plus the wave pool and slides will be open for a splashing good time.

“It’s vital to recognize and support our youth and help build a strong connection between young people and their community,” said CVRD’s manager of recreation services, Jennifer Zbinden.
“The free pool party allows them to come together and celebrate in an active way, and encourages them to engage in a continued healthy lifestyle.”
