In the 1980s, there was no community recreational centre with an indoor pool in any of the surrounding towns. It was this lack of community services which encouraged Piret Kreem-King to build Splashy's Swim 'n Fitness. Splashy's has been serving the communities of Bradford, Schomberg, Pottageville, Tottenham, Beeton, Newmarket, Alliston and as far away as Barrie. Many former swimmers now bring their own kids to Splashy's as this highly recommended family business has been part of the community for such a long time.
Splashy's has done a lot over the years. In previous years, our fitness studio has been rented out and activities such as personal training, gymnastics, yoga, fitness classes, and dancing have been offered.
However, swimming is our main focus. During the summer, we also offer a really neat summer camp where campers play sports, swim, and play in the indoor playground. In the 1990s, our baseball diamond was used in our summer camp. The tennis court is still here though and continues to be a feature in our camp.
The indoor playground opened in 2001 which was the first for Bradford or any other surrounding community. Setting us apart, the indoor playground also features a jumping castle!
In many ways, we were and continue to be an interesting business and community centre in Bradford.
Even though Piret is retired, her son Lukas is continuing to provide quality swimming instruction and teach life skills. And even though Bradford now has a recreational centre of its own due to its large population expansion, clients enjoy coming to Splashy's because of the small scale family atmosphere, where you are known by name and not just a number. Swimming lessons are taught by professional, mature staff. Splashy's also continues to be a fun family destination for children's birthday parties and special events like Easter, Strawberry Fest, and Pumpkin Fest.
Situated on a farm, Splashy's also offers pick-your-own and ready picked strawberries and other fruits and vegetables from the farm. On the side, Lukas is also a beekeeper and sells honey. Come enjoy the many services we provide and see why we have been here since 1989!
