As colder fall weather approaches, avid walkers will be happy to hear the South Okanagan Events Centre (SOEC) walking track will reopen to the public on Tuesday, Oct. 13.
SOEC general manager Dean Clarke says he’s excited to reopen the track for the many residents who use it regularly.
“We know how many people in our community rely on it to safely maintain their daily exercise regime and we have been working hard on new systems and protocol to be able to welcome residents back into the facility,” said Clarke.
“The health and safety of our patrons and staff is our number one priority, and there has been a tremendous amount of staff time and planning to ensure a safe reopening.
“We look forward to welcoming patrons back and creating a safe and enjoyable space for everyone.”
All walking track users will be required to book a time-slot prior to visiting the facility through valleyfirsttix.com. Visitors can expect limited time slots and a reduced schedule to start, with expanded schedules becoming available over time.
The reservation system will open Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 9 a.m.
Residents can learn more about these changes and check for regular updates by visiting the South Okanagan Events Centre website at https://www.soec.ca/arena-information/walking-track/ .
