The City of Saskatoon is lowering the cost of Leisure Centre passes in the wake of diminishing sales and poor customer feedback.
“We heard you, Saskatoon,” director of recreation and sport Cary Humphrey said in a release Thursday.
Come Sept. 1, the cost of all monthly passes will drop as follows:
- Adult passes will drop to $45 per month, down from $75.
- Youth passes will be cut nearly in half to $27 from $45.
- Family passes will drop to $90 from $150.
- Adults will pay $540 a year instead of $557.
- Families will pay $1,080 instead of $1,114.
- Bulk tickets will also be reduced to $75 for an adult 10-pack of single admission tickets.
However general drop-in prices will stay the same and will be frozen until 2018. Though prices will drop for annual passes as well, customers will no longer save any money by buying yearly passes as opposed to monthly.
“We are reducing the financial barriers to participate in fitness and fun at our Leisure Centres,” Humphrey said.
Customers who bought passes that will still be valid after Sept. 1 are eligible to receive a refund of the difference.
In January, the city will also launch a ‘Pick Your Perk’ program which will reward long-term LeisureCard customers.
Current LeisureCard customers can visit the city’s website to see how the lower prices affect them and to learn about their options.
