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 Cara at

Our walking / running track is in the Zatzman Sportpslex arena and access to the track is free for use on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday. If you do not have a membership to the Sportsplex, Monday, Friday, and Saturday will have a drop-in fee of $5.

Due to restrictions from COVID-19, you must book your time to walk or run on the track ahead of schedule through HRM MyRec. 

Our full track schedule is listed here.

Free Zumba is available on Sunday's, 9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. Free Zumba must be booked ahead of time through MyRec, or at the Welcome Desk.

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. 

Due to COVID-19 Restrictons we are currently unable to offer Teen Takeover. We are looking for ways we can safely re-start this program, so please keep checking our social media for new updates!
