Free Public Swimming Coming To Lindsay Rec Complex On May 13 And 14

KAWARTHA LAKES-Looking for some free fun for the kids? The Kawartha Lakes Parks and Recreation Division in partnership with local community program ‘Stepping Stones’ is offering free public swimming opportunities at the Lindsay Recreation Complex on May 13 and 14, 2023.

The free Fun/Fitness Swims will take place on Saturday May 13 from 2pm to 4pm and on Sunday May 14 from 6pm to 8pm.

Limited space is available and pre-registration is required through the Kawartha Lakes Online Program Registration website.

The swims will be sponsored by local Grade 12 student Siobhan Marie who founded the community program ‘Stepping Stones’. The ‘Stepping Stones’ program supports local youth by providing them with access to recreational opportunities free of cost, provides schools with groceries for their breakfast programs, as well as care packages to support students and families in need. Drawing from the belief that everyone deserves equal access to community opportunities, Siobhan says she hopes that her program ‘Stepping Stones’ will alleviate barriers to healthy living that youth in the City of Kawartha Lakes might encounter.
