Good news for you health nuts out there! On Monday, the Vancouver Park Board announced that it will reopen some fitness centres and arenas starting in mid-September. Here’s what you should know about it.

First up, the fitness centres. Half of the 24 will be reopening by mid-September, with the other 12 coming in through a ‘phased approach’ later on. The majority of the space will be used by those with reservations. But, they will keep a float of around 20% for drop-in gymgoers.

Now on to the arenas. Three of them- Kerrisdale, Sunset, and Trout Lake- will reopen on September 21, while the others should come back for October. These arenas will only be available to organized sports permit holders. But, they’re hoping to work out a plan for the public soon.

And we will keep you updated if they do! In the meanwhile, we’re going to go buy a pair of rollerblades to get some practice in.
