(Penticton BC, March 2, 2018) – With the winter season drawing to a close, it’s time to dig out the swimsuits and bikes as we make the shift from snowflakes to blossoms.

Recreation enthusiasts can look forward to seeing another guide full of programs, articles and other information to help you reach your recreation goals throughout spring and summer.
