While lazy lake days and weekend camping trips will certainly be missed, it’s safe to say that after a long, dry and fire-ridden summer we’re all looking forward to the sweet reprieve of fall. Get ahead of the incoming rain by registering for Esquimalt Recreation’s fall programming and strut into fall knowing that regardless of weather, you’ll always have something to do!
“Esquimalt Parks and Recreation offers a full line up of activities, including sports and events for the entire community,” says Meghan Nicklin, Recreation Coordinator. “From infants to teens, young adults all the way up to seniors, our fall programming offers events and activities that are designed to meet the needs of our entire, diverse community.”
Sports, fine arts, and more!
Esquimalt Recreation Centre offers everything from soccer and taekwondo to dance, music, art classes and more for all ages.
“We encourage everyone to register early for the programs they’re interested in, because many of our programs are quite popular and can fill up fast,” Nicklin says.
Registration for fall programs is currently available online here and registration for fall swim lessons will open up on September first but swim lesson schedules are currently available to view here.

New program instructors wanted!
“We’re always looking for new programs to offer our amazing and diverse community,” Nicklin says. “We’re currently accepting new contract applications for those interested in offering a unique program through Esquimalt Parks and Recreation.”
In particular Nicklin says they’re seeking program instructors for youth and adult dance classes, culture and language classes, music classes, cooking classes, computer classes for adults and many more.
