Seniors Recreation Strategy
    
Kelowna’s seniors population is anticipated to double in the next 20 years.  The Recreation Strategy looks at how to adapt current facilities, programs and approaches.
 
Planning for seniors recreation is more complex than at first might appear. Many of the standard approaches to recreation planning simply do not work for seniors, especially those who are no longer auto-mobile. Seniors require a system that is more social/community oriented as opposed to physical recreation oriented, and is close at hand, rather than accessible by car.
 
The Kelowna strategy identified a number of very clear recommendations as well as conducting the research and laying out the issues that the system must grapple with over the coming years.
