Diving Right Into Lions Free Swims this Spring

City of Nanaimo Parks and Recreation and the Nanaimo Lions Club are pleased to announce the Lions Free Swims are back for another season at Beban Park Pool. Held every Sunday from 2-3:30 pm, April 7 to June 30.

"As we move into spring, we are so pleased to be able to continue working with the Lions and the many dedicated community sponsors to give Nanaimo residents an opportunity to swim at no cost," says Taz Hartwick, Aquatics Recreation Coordinator. "Last year we welcomed over 200 residents each Sunday and we are excited to see that grow."

"The Nanaimo Lions Club is proud to begin the second session of the Lions Free Swims. This project, which complements our Lions Free Skate in the winter season, exemplifies our motto 'we serve'," says Larrie Taylor, Nanaimo Lions Club President. "The primary purpose of the 1.4 million Lions around the world is to serve the needs of their local and world-wide communities. The response we have had to the Lions Free Swims in Nanaimo indicates we are helping to fill an important need and are very happy with this partnership."

Nanaimo Parks and Recreation and the Nanaimo Lions Club wish to acknowledge the many sponsors including Chris Martin - Remax, Little Valley Restoration and Collision, Nanaimo Hearing Clinic, Roto Rooter, Simply You Fitness & Nutrition, and Widsten Property Management Services.
