We’ve got recommendations just for you!
All year round, there’s loads to do in Summerside, but now with the warmer weather and sunny skies, we can add some of our favourite summer activities and sports to our list of ways to live our best #seasidelife!
CREDIT UNION PLACE
If all things sports is your jam, don’t miss the chance to celebrate Island sports history with the P.E.I. Sports Hall of Fame and Museum. Featuring stories, memorabilia, and more, the display set up at Credit Union Place is a great way to learn about the impact sport and leisure have had on P.E.I. and the Island!
Speaking of Credit Union Place, whether it’s a rainy day or clear skies, there’s always fun to enjoy at the city’s premier fun facility. While you’re at the CUP, you can enjoy time at the Aquatics Centre in their lap pool or leisure pool! On weekends they open up their water slide and rock climbing wall for added fun! On occasion, they also have aqua sports like underwater hockey and Waterpolo.
Also at Credit Union Place are The Lanes – the city’s bowling lanes. You can enjoy seven-pin bowling, cosmic bowling, arcade games, and pub food in the licensed area for some fun time for all ages!
Step on to the (virtual) green for some golfing fun at Double Eagle Indoor Golf. With three full-size golf simulators and the capability for up to four golfers per group, you can practice your swing, your drive, and perfect your game without having to retrieve your ball from the water or sand pits. You can book a simulator for up to four hours, or if you’re a golfing regular (even in the winter), you can purchase 10-hour or 20-hour memberships.
With the warmer weather, getting outdoors sometimes feels a lot less daunting than the winter-time counterpart; and with that in mind, there’s a bunch to do outside in the seaside air!
First stop, the Knot Beach Bar and Rentals! If you’re looking to get your heart rate up by enjoying some time on the water, you can enjoy kayaking or paddle boarding by renting gear from The Knot! The crew at The Knot can also set you up with cruiser bikes if you’d like to actively make your way through the city on two wheels!
If you’re looking for team or individual activities, head back to the grounds of Credit Union Place and take some time at the outdoor tennis courts or beach volleyball courts. Get your gang together and spike the ball for a volleyball round or grab your rackets and serve a mean game of tennis; for access to the courts, check-in at the front desk of Credit Union Place. If tennis isn’t your favourite, but you’re still looking for some similar fun, head to the pickleball courts at the Wilmot Centre! Set on a smaller scale, pickleball might be your new favourite sport for the summer! And, if you’re a skater or BMX rider don’t miss some fun at the Summerside’s skatepark with a bowl and other obstacles to send it!
While it offers regularly scheduled programming, the Summerside Dome also offers pop-up sports nights, drop-ins, and other fun public events you can take in! As one of the city’s newest sporting and activity facilities, the 60,000-foot turf field often features flag football, soccer, baseball, inflatables, yoga and other activities every week! To stay up to date with fun activities, make sure to follow The Dome at @summersidedome on Facebook and Instagram!
ACTIVE LIVING SUMMERSIDE
Like the Dome, Active Living Summerside offers regularly scheduled programming, from single activities to multi-week programs; there’s no reason not to sign up for some fun to keep active in the city! From Spikeball pop-ups to kids camps, if you’re in Summerside, following along with Active Living is a great way to find activities for all ages that can also be done as a family!
