Esquimalt Recreation Center
Victoria tends to encourage a healthy lifestyle, whether through the availability of its many nature and sports parks, its extensive network of pathways, or its popular community recreation centers. While some of the city’s residents choose to range all over the city to work wellness into their lives, many choose to become loyal to specific rec centers. Victoria has many of these facilities and, of them, the Esquimalt Recreation Center is widely considered to be one of the best. For good reason, too. With state-of-the-art equipment, spacious community class rooms and fitness areas, an outside exercise area, playing fields, and friendly knowledgeable staff, the Esquimalt Recreation Center provides an encouraging wellness centre that makes healthy living not only accessible but also enjoyable for its patrons. Although Esquimalt has many sports and nature parks and trails that encourage its residents to get out and be active, many people appreciate being able to stick to their particular fitness routine, or perhaps enjoy the camaraderie that attending special interest classes can bring.
