  • Child and Family programs
  • Family resource programs
  • Drop-in playgroups for children and their caregivers

“I regularly attend a low cost family drop-in program with my children because of the social interaction and opportunity to network with other parents in my neighbourhood.  The program has been an invaluable beneficial, and emotional support for me and my children.”   Tamara S.

Youth:

  • Presentations on youth issues
  • Drug and alcohol education for youth
  • Youth advocacy
  • Youth crisis intervention and family mediation 
  • Individual youth support (including assesment and referral)
  • Youth centres staffed by trained Youth Workers

“For the past six years the Parkgate youth centre has been an inviting, and safe place for me to talk to youth workers and engage in a fun environment.  Out-trips, like hockey and skiing, have given me lots of great memories.  My best experience was attending surf camps and working my way up to being a mentor on one of the girls’ trips.  I have also developed volunteer skills while working with preteens at the youth centre.”  Gabriella R.

Seniors:

  • Special events and bus trips
  • Drop-in sports
  • Drop-in social games
  • Free programs
  • Twice-weekly lunches and daily coffee from the Community Kitchen

“Our families are grateful that Parkgate offers meals where we can socialize with others.  It is also a relief for us not to have to worry about preparing all of our meals.  Attending exercise programs keep us healthy and it is fun to go to the Friday movies.  There are lots of reasons to go to Parkgate!  Vivienne & Arthur C.
