The mission of the ParkSide Centre is to enable, provide and advocate opportunities for people over 50 to explore their potential and to maintain a healthy, active and independent
life style. Our primary objective is to provide social, recreational and educational programs and services.
Annual memberships are just $45.00 and include such benefits as access to drop-in activities, reduced fees for ParkSide programs and discounted rates on room rentals and catering services. The ParkSide Centre also offers subsidies to assist those who otherwise could not take part in our activities and programs. And, through their generosity and corporate partnership, Vale and Sudbury Intergrated Nickel Company offer their
employees and retirees a one-year free membership to experience all that The ParkSide Centre has to offer. (Please note that this offer applies to new members only)
Calling all former ParkSide members:
The ParkSide Centre has recently added a new membership assistance program entitled the “Friendly Calling Program”. ParkSide volunteers are in the process of making non-intrusive,
friendly calls to past members who haven’t renewed their membership to inquire if everything is OK, to remind them that their membership has lapsed and to ask if they are
considering renewal or if they need community assistance, etc. To ensure the program’s long term success, the most important thing is a strong, committed volunteer base of callers.
If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer “friendly caller,” just let us know and we’ll help get you started. If you’re a previous ParkSide member, please visit our website at
www.theparksidecentre.ca to discover what you’ve been missing – we’d love to welcome you back!
The greatest wealth is health!
The ParkSide Centre is pleased to offer a wide variety of health and wellness programs including: Get Fit for Active Living – Diabetes, Fall Prevention programs, Blood Pressure Clinics, and the Parkinson’s Mobility Program, to name a few. A retired physiotherapist conducts weekly sessions to look after your back, neck, shoulders, and knees; and Gentle Hatha Yoga will help build flexibility and strength. Or, maybe you’d prefer Tai Chi or Zumba? We’ve got those too as well as chair yoga, chair tai chi and others.
And, if you like to dance, you’ve come to the right place! From belly dancing and traditional line dancing, to clogging and square dancing, you’ll find it all at The ParkSide Centre.
Find out more at 705-673-6227 or www.theparksidecentre.ca.
Exercise your mind!
If you are looking for programs that challenge your creative abilities or that are mentally stimulating then the ParkSide Centre has what you seek. For the artist, we have drawing, painting and paper tole classes. The Sudbury Carving and Stained Glass Club will get you started with one simple project. If crafting is more to your liking there are other activities such as, traditional rug hooking, bunka embroidery and quilting. We can also teach you to use your computer, digital camera or other gadget and gizmo. To find out about these programs and the many others we offer, phone 705-673-6227 or visit our website at www.theparksidecentre.ca.
If you have some time to spare, consider volunteering at ParkSide. Perhaps you have a skill to share and would be interested in instructing a course; maybe you’d like to meet and greet people at the front desk or lend a hand in the kitchen.
Lunch is served Monday to Friday from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM (except for special events which are 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM). We also offer half portions and a takeout option.
