Trick or Swim or Skate!


This Halloween, consider giving a healthier alternative to the standard Halloween treat.

Once again this year, the perfect candy-free alternative for a Halloween treat is Trick or Swim or Skate tickets.

Each ticket is good for admission to a public swim or skate at a City recreation facility. You can hand them out at the door on Halloween night or give them directly to the little trick-or-treater in your life.

Tickets are available now, while supplies last, at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (1500 Shea Road) or other participating City recreation facilities near you.

Trick or Swim or Skate tickets are:

  • fun;
  • affordable ($10 for 10 tickets);
  • allergy free;
  • have zero calories;
  • gluten free;
  • They promote an active lifestyle; AND
  • They do not cause cavities!

Plus, a public swimming or public skating session is bound to last way longer than any mini chocolate bar, even for the slowest of eaters.

Kids ages 3- 15 can redeem their tickets from November 1, 2017 to January 31, 2018 during regularly scheduled public or family swims and skates at City pools and select arenas (unfortunately, tickets are not valid for wave swims).

I highly encourage residents to consider giving the gift of physical activity to all the little ghosts and ghouls this Halloween!
