Feeling sporty? Head to the North of the Village and enjoy a day of sports with the family – and possibly some relaxation – at the Meadow Park Sports Center in Whistler. The public facility comprises an indoor kid’s pool and a lap pool, an indoor ice skating rink, a gym, a fitness studio, squash courts, a weight room to enjoy the sports part of the trip. The hot tub and the steam room will provide the relaxation part of the trip. To top it all off, everything is reasonably priced.
The kiddie pool is fantastic! It has a bunch of water fountains and spouting bears for the little kids to splash through and some lazy rivers to float around on. There are shallow areas in the kid’s pool for the little ones and deeper parts for the older children. The lap pool has 6 lanes and spans 25-metres – swing into the pool on the rope swing, slide down the 8 foot slide or play a round of water basketball.
Rent some skates, helmets and push bars if need be and head into the arena, where the NHL-sized ice rink awaits. Or you can call ahead and reserve one of the two squash court for 45 minutes – you can even rent some racquets, goggles. Take a class in the Fitness Studio, get your heart beating in the cardio area with its variety of machines or run through your own personal workout routine with the free weights or plate-loaded machines.
Don’t miss Fridays during the winter, when Meadow Park Sports Center hosts a Family Swim & Skate Night. Families can skate and swim for only $2 per person! Even for larger families, this is a very economical outing for the whole crew. Conveniently, towels are available for rent.
