DELTA’S Virtual Recreation Centre is the perfect place to stay active while practicing good physical distancing, says the City of Delta.
Although Delta Parks, Recreation and Culture facilities are currently closed due to COVID-19, the City of Delta is adapting some of its programming to be accessible to you and your family from the comfort of your home. Whether you are looking for full fitness classes led by experienced trainers or imaginative art projects and thrilling games for children of all ages, Delta’s Virtual Recreation Centre is the new hub for programs and activities, curated by the recreation staff.
All aspects of Delta’s rich programming will be represented in the coming weeks, including arts, community recreation, sports, aquatics, and fitness, as well as specialty programming for seniors. Through pre-recorded videos and live classes, Delta staff are providing Delta residents with the tools to connect with other members of their community in a fun and productive way.
To kick-off this new initiative, the City of Delta has released four full-length workout videos of varying intensity alongside a schedule of unique interactive programming that will take place over the phone or via conferencing software. This first batch of programs include the Stay at Home Series, a Mother’s Day-themed Arts and Crafts class, a Home Alone course, and even a live fitness class.
Delta Mayor George V. Harvie said on Tuesday: “In an effort to maintain positive mental and physical health during these unprecedented times, the demand for recreation options is extraordinarily high. Our staff has found a creative and inspired solution to service the community despite the closure of our recreation facilities. We want our residents to know that while we are doing business differently, our priority continues to be the delivery of high-quality, inclusive programming that provides people with the opportunity to interact and engage in a meaningful way.”
