AQUAFIT (AFTERNOON CLASS) CANCELLED APRIL 22, 2019.

Community Access

To us, community access means everyone has an opportunity to take advantage of recreation for the good of their mental, physical, and spiritual health. Part of our commitment to community is ensuring we offer programs and services for all ages, abilities, and walks of life. 

Check out the calendar below and join us at the Zatzman Sportsplex during these free play opportunities. Any questions about community access at the Zatzman Sportsplex? Contact Elizabeth at ohanlee@halifax.ca.


Our walking / running track is in the Zatzman Sportpslex arena and offers four free days of access to the community.

  • Mondays from 5:30 a.m. - 10:30 p.m.
  • Wednesdays from 5:30 a.m. - 10:30 p.m.
  • Fridays from 5:30 a.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Please check in at the Welcome Desk and let them know you're using the track. Our staff will buzz you through the gates.

We offer one free fitness class a week, open to everyone in the community. These free fitness classes are designed for all abilities and ages, so they're fun for the whole family. 

Currently, we offer Family Fit Camp at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. Join us in the gymnasium for this free class.

Teen Takeover Night is every Friday at 7 until 10 p.m. Youth ages 12-17 take over the facility on Friday nights, with the pool, gymnasium, and other rooms like fitness studios dedicated to teens only!

To participate in Teen Takeover Night, all you have to do is fill out a quick form once then sign in each Friday you attend. The form is available when you arrive on your first Friday. The forms asks for your name, address, email address, and health card number (which we need). Please make sure you have this information available when you arrive.
