“Like” Campbell River Recreation on Facebook

The City of Campbell River Recreation and Culture Department has started a fun and interactive Facebook Page

The City of Campbell River Recreation and Culture Department has started a fun and interactive Facebook Page. The page is designed to promote fun, healthy and inclusive recreation opportunities for the community. Posts will offer tips for healthy living, plus share information about upcoming programs, fitness classes and instructors and community events. There’ll also be quizzes where people can test their health and recreation knowledge, and video clips will feature fitness classes and new programs.  “This Facebook page will be of particular interest to people who want recreation information only,” says Ross Milnthorp, the City’s general manager of parks, recreation and culture. The Facebook page has been set up so anyone can view it – even people who don’t have a Facebook account. The only difference is people with an account will be able to “Like” the page to receive updates and post comments.
