It’s been COVID-delayed but still comes with a sense of bright celebration.… the Weight Room & Fitness Studio at the SEAPARC Leisure Complex will be officially celebrated tomorrow, Saturday May 28.
Opened in 2020:
In April 2018, SEAPARC Leisure Complex received a $1.24 million grant from the Strategic Priorities Federal Gas Tax Fund to support the expansion of a new Weight Room, Fitness Studio and Board Room.
These additions have added to the diversity of programs and recreation opportunities the complex offers, increasing the footprint of the complex by 478 square metres (5,150 square feet).
The new expansion opened to the public on February 7, 2020, however due to the COVID pandemic, the original grand opening has ultimately been postponed for two years.
Event this weekend:
The SEAPARC Commission welcomes the community to attend the May 28, 2022 Open House to acknowledge this project achievement and tour the facility.
Recognition of the completion of the 2020 facility expansion will take place 11 am to 12:30 pm. That includes a tour of the facility. Meet the Fitness Team, enjoy refreshments, and enter to win prizes.
Prizes include personal training sessions, a one-month membership, and more.
There is no fee to attend the event at SEAPARC which is located at 2168 Phillips Road in Sooke.
Community recreation is provided at the SEAPARC Leisure Complex.
The SEAPARC Leisure Complex is owned and operated by the Capital Regional District (CRD). Funding is levied from taxpayers in both the District of Sooke and the Juan de Fuca Electoral District.
Each new season, the SEAPARC activity guide can be found online.
