National Health and Fitness Day is on Saturday, June 3, 2017

Winnipeg, MB - The City of Winnipeg will participate in this year’s National Health and Fitness Day on June 3, 2017 by providing free access to any of our City-run aquatic and recreation facilities during scheduled public use times.

"We look forward to seeing you on National Health and Fitness Day at our City facilities," said Mayor Brian Bowman. “Join me and my family on June 3 as we incorporate activity throughout our day.”

National Health and Fitness Day provides an opportunity for municipalities and all citizens to celebrate and promote the use of local health, recreational, sports and fitness facilities. The objective is to inspire Canadians to become fitter and more active which will result in reduced health care costs attributed to preventable diseases related to inactivity.

For more details on times and locations for free access at City-run aquatic and recreation facilities on June 3, 2017, please visit Public entry requirements and capacity restrictions will apply at all facilities. No pre-registration is required.

Winnipeggers are also encouraged to share their experience with the City on social media by using #NHFDwpg or #fittestnation. For more information, please see
