Age Friendly Community Recreation Project

The goal of the project is to connect with local clubs and organizations offering recreational opportunities for those 50+ within District 69 and inventory and digitally map these offerings. In doing so we intend to strengthen connections between the groups which in turn will lead to an increased awareness within our communities of the opportunities for those 50+ to be active and engaged.

  • Working Group Meeting- update

    8 days ago

    Our first working group meeting was on May 28th - thank you to our volunteers. Over the next few weeks they will be busy gathering inventory data on local recreation programs and inputting it into a central database which will ultimately inform an interactive map available to the public.

    If you are involved with a group that provides recreation services within the Oceanside area and want to be sure to be included please contact us as we want to make sure the final product is as complete as possible.
