Free Programming this Summer for Seniors 55+

Where: Plouffe Park (behind the Plant Recreation Centre, 930 Somerset St. West

When: Tuesdays and Thursdays from July 5- August 25, 2022 (weather permitting)

Time: 9:30 – 11:15 A.M.

If you are a Centretown area senior resident who is hankering to get outside more often, the Plouffe Park morning program is designed to put some sparkle in your day and to grow your connections with other seniors in the community. It is being hosted and organized by Plant Pool Recreation Association (PPRA) and generously sponsored by the Ottawa Community Foundation.

So, if you are available on Tuesday and Thursday mornings in July and August, we welcome you. It is both DROP-IN and FREE for you: The morning starts with age-appropriate warm-ups; you will soon find you are getting into the rhythm of the day with a company of friends, new and old. Next, standing and sitting exercises will gently reawaken your muscles and put a smile on your face all the while offering you a challenge. Will you need a break? Water and refreshments are provided, and we encourage you to take frequent breaks as needed.

Of course, some days you may be more drawn to recreational activities such as table tennis, badminton, beanbag toss, ball games or croquet. The choice is always yours. And don’t forget, there is ample time for restful activities such as card or board games, puzzles or quiet conversation with a new friend or two.

Each day, your inter-generational team of staff will be there to welcome you and support you throughout the morning. They will want to hear about your preferences and will make every effort to accommodate your needs. They will provide masks and hand sanitizer that participants may utilize by choice.


To add to the richness of the program, we are fortunate to welcome two experienced GUEST TEACHERS FROM PROPELLER DANCE: SHARA WEAVER and LIZ WINKELAAR. They will co-teach, FOUR THURSDAYS JULY 21, 28 and AUGUST 4 and 11, offering you additional approaches to standing and sitting movement. Lots to take away and integrate into your daily routines.
