For the first time in Toronto, more people are over 65 than under 15. Our senior population is projected to grow to 21 per cent by 2036. Active ageing exercises help ensure seniors are more independent. Designed to help older adults stay mobile, healthy, and physically active in Toronto, free outdoor exercise equipment promotes physical activity, community health and community connectedness.
Your taxes have funded five such environmentally friendly parks that require no electricity and minimal maintenance. They include elements like stationary and recumbent bicycles, side-by-side striders, leg presses and hand-eye dexterity games, walking paths with ramps, steps and arches; games like bocce, ping pong or horseshoes; and shaded seating areas.
Your City needs more senior-friendly parks which can only become a reality today through your generosity.
