For many families, swimming is a great way to participate in an activity as a family while teaching children and parents, sometimes, a vital life skill. The indoor swimming pool is always heated to 86°F so that no matter the temperature outside you can enjoy a fun time indoor with your family. If you’re looking for a low-impact fitness class they offer Aqua Fit classes several times a week, where all levels of ability are welcome. You and your children can also take any level of swimming lesson here: from first time in the water up to advanced lessons.
If you’re looking for a way to keep your kids entertained on a weekday afternoon, the centre also has open swim days for kids to play and burn some energy.
Family Learning Resources
If you’re looking for activities to partake in, outside of swimming, with your family the West Scarborough Neighbourhood Community Centre offers so many resources for all families in East Toronto communities. Whether you’re looking for a way to spend some more time together reading, crafting or playing with something like Together Time or you’re looking for something more age specific like one of our Pre-School, Toddler or Baby/Infant time programs we’re here to support your family. We’re deeply invested in our community and we want to support the families here, so we will make sure you have access to all the resources we can give to help you build a future.
Being retired is one of the greatest times of your life: you don’t have to get up and go to work anymore, you have free time to pursue your interests and hobbies and spend time with your family. On the downside, though, you are missing out on the social aspect of going to work and being active so you might find yourself looking for activities where you can get out of the house and meet others. Our seniors programs are fantastic! From Aqua Fit and yoga to card afternoons and carpet bowling, seniors programs are designed to keep you active and help you meet others in your community with shared interests.
The West Scarborough Neighbourhood Community Centre is located at the outskirts of Byng Park which can be access via Presley Ave. This centre is easily accessible via TTC and is a perfect location for families to visit for the day, especially since they can enjoy a picnic in the park afterwards. This centre offers a very supportive environment for families and individuals of all backgrounds so they can come together and enjoy a sense of community.
