Parks and Recreation Older Adults Strategy

Your Vision, Your Community, Imagine The Possibilities!

Over the next 12 months,, Saanich Parks & Recreation will be developing a new Older Adults strategy.   The new strategy will provide Parks & Recreation with a five year plan for the years 2018-2022 to best meet the needs of Older Adults. Public engagements are being held soon and we want your input  Older Adult Strategy Public EngagementPDF  Just call Julie Wallace anytime you have any questions at all and she'll be happy to chat with you (250) 475-5408.

Saanich Active Aging Vision

Our vision is for a community where people can live healthy and active lives well into their senior years; where older people are valued for their skills and life experiences and where they participate in the community in ways that they choose. Saanich will be a positive place in which to age and encourage participation in maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle.
