Welcome

One of BREC's main focuses is to develop progamming that helps families and children stay active outdoors. Join a class as a family or attend one of our many community events for a day of family fun. Check out our camps in the summer and on school holidays, which aim to keep children active while they are away from school. Also during the summer months, families can enjoy several swimming pools and the Liberty Lagoon Aquatic Center.
