With 30 different Saanich Access Pass options, it’s easy to find the perfect pass for you or your family. Use it for drop-in fitness and sports programs, swimming, skating and more!

Your ideal workout starts here!

What does your ideal workout look like? While we all have our favourite activities, we also know that changing things up can have a big impact, not only in our overall fitness, but also in our ability to stick with it.

Your Saanich Access Pass – offering more than 489 hours of potential activities each week – opens the door to a varied, engaging workout for life!

“With a pass that works at all four recreation centres, there really is something for everyone, and it can be just so affordable,” says Deanna Roch, Weight Room & Fitness Programmer with Saanich Recreation.

What do you love about your Access Pass?

It’s flexible: With one pass, access programs at Cedar Hill, Gordon Head, Pearkes and Saanich Commonwealth Place recreation centres: No matter where you are, you have fitness and recreation options nearby. While some programs are common across all centres, others are more specialized, so you can use your pass to try something new. “That also makes us a little unique,” Roch says.

Because each centre has its own features and all have parks nearby, use your pass to change up your workout. Hit the gym, then enjoy a swim at Gordon Head, or follow your Elk Lake loop run with a soak in the hot tub at Commonwealth Place. At Cedar Hill, pair a game of pickle ball or a walk around the golf course with a weightroom session.

Many newcomers and students love exploring all four corners of their new community, experiencing so much more than a single gym allows. (Not to mention the easy bus service and ample free parking!)

It’s affordable: With 30 – yes, 30! – different pass options, there’s something suitable for everyone. From a 10X pass to test the waters to an annual pass at less than $40 monthly, choose the pass that works for you.

The annual family pass can provide particular savings for families – one or both parents/guardians and up to four children age 18 or younger all in the same home. For one low monthly fee, mom, dad and kids can enjoy swimming, skating, fitness classes and weight room sessions, not to mention drop-in sports ranging from table-tennis to volleyball.

“You can enjoy a fun activity together, then use the pass individually to work out at your leisure,” Roch says. “You’re paying less and getting so much more.”

It’s inclusive: Saanich recreation is designed for community, and that means the whole community – all ages, fitness levels, backgrounds and genders.

“I’ve been in recreation since 1990 – in Calgary and Victoria – and this is very much community recreation. I know I can take my 13-year-old to a drop-in class with me and Saanich welcomes that,” Roch says. “People who are used to a private gym tell us it has a really different feel; there’s a real sense of community.”
