Parks and rec offering free samples

NANAIMO – Parks, Recreation and Culture’s Sampler Week helps people pick their favourite pastimes for fall and winter.

For most of us the beginning of September means a return to routine.

Nanaimo Parks, Recreation and Culture offers more than 1,000 programs each season so staff there know choosing a program that fits within that routine can be overwhelming.

To make it a bit easier, parks and rec is hosting Sampler Week, which runs until Friday (Sept. 13) and features programs and drop-in sessions for people to try.

The sessions, offered at different recreation centres and times throughout the week, are free, but registration is required.

For more information, please visit or call the parks and rec main switchboard at 250-756-5200.
