If you’re a parent of a student in School District 43 and already have June 29 circled on your calendar as the last day of the academic year, there’s relief for the summer.
Coquitlam is again offering its Summer Child & Youth Pass, providing unlimited access for drop-ins to the city’s pools and recreation centres for kids and teens up to the age of 18.
Now on sale, the pass is valid from June 16 to Sept. 4 and costs $25 (taxes included).
The $5 bump is the first time the city has hiked the price since the pass launched in 2015.
It can be bought by phone at 604-927-4386 or in person at Coquitlam civic facilities.
Proof of age is required, so bring ID. For more details, visit coquitlam.ca/summerpass.
As for residents who can’t afford the pass, the city has an assistance program available.
