Recreation fees in Victoria inch higher

Twenty-five cent hike for drop-in fees for pool, arena

A Victoria city council subcommittee has approved some changes to the fee structure of the city’s recreational facilities.

Should council adopt the recommendation by the community and development standing committee, drop-in fees to Crystal Pool recreation centre will rise by $0.25. Annual passes will stay the same price, but the “bronze” level pass – which provides restricted access – will be eliminated.

Drop-in fees to the Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre will also rise by $0.25, and all other fees will see an inflationary increase of two per cent, such as on rental of equipment, sport fields, and Royal Athletic Park.
