With a new year comes the arrival of a new season, Winter has arrived and we’ve been admiring the early morning frost as well as the early rising runners and dog-walkers along the riverbank. For those of you who like to bring exercise indoors during the chillier months or would like to add to your health and wellness routine, we have some great options here at River District Centre.
