FREE Fun! Need We Say More?

Free Admission Day

September 27, 2012

Pyramids, water slides, monkeys and wagon rides can all be part of your FREE family fun this Sunday. The City of Edmonton is proud to host the 2012 Free Admission Day to thank Edmontonians for their ongoing support of attractions and recreation facilities.

Plan your day so you can go for a morning swim and then take the kids to the zoo for the afternoon; or tour the Muttart Conservatory’s new feature pyramid and catch a spin class at your nearest recreation centre. The YMCA has partnered with the City to offer free admission at 4 of its facilities again this year.
