Partners in recreation

Saanich Parks & Recreation works with many local organizations to help deliver social and recreational opportunities to our older citizens.  We work to provide avenues for social participation not just in our centres but in the community at large.  For more information on our partners and older adult organizations see the "RELATED LINKS" list on this page.  Many offer opportunities for low cost or free programs, social gatherings and volunteering.
