If lack of funds is hindering your participation in our drop-in and registered programs, register for the L.I.F.E. program, which offers financial assistance for individuals and families with low incomes.

The L.I.F.E. program will provide each eligible person with:

  • 104 Free Drop-In admissions to our facility (arena, pool, fitness classes, sauna, steam room, and weight room)
  • 50% reduction in fees for three (3) registered programs at Strathcona Gardens (swimming lessons, skating lessons, and fitness programs)
