City offers swim coupons for trick-or-treaters

Halloween doesn’t have to be a sugar rush: City offers swim coupons for trick-or-treaters If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to all the candy that comes out during Halloween season, we have a solution that will keep the ghouls and goblins in your neighbourhood happy. Our Halloween swim coupons are back.

“It’s an awesome deal.” says Heather Cowie, regional manager with The City of Calgary Recreation. “For only $5 you get 10 swim coupons, and when you add in the fact that one of those swim coupons is for a leisure centre, it’s easy to understand why these booklets are so popular.”

Each Halloween coupon booklet includes one swim coupon for a City leisure centre (redeemable at either of our leisure centres), in addition to nine coupons to use at any of the City aquatic & fitness centres (redeemable at any of our 12 aquatic & fitness centres). Children from 2 to 17 can use a coupon to enjoy a free swim during public swim times from Nov. 1 – Dec. 31, 2015.

For the past nine years, we have encouraged Calgarians to surprise trick-or-treaters with a free swim coupon instead of a traditional sugar-filled Halloween treat. Simply tear off a free swim coupon and drop it into your trick-or-treater's Halloween bags!

Time is running out. Only a limited number of booklets are printed each year and they do sell out so everyone is encouraged to buy their booklets early to avoid disappointment.

Calgarians can purchase the coupon booklets from a variety of City Recreation locations or online at Halloween swim coupons are on sale until October 31. For more information visit
