Toward A More Age Friendly Brockville

IMG_1269cmpThere are various initiatives in Brockville that have a common goal of creating an environment that’s conducive to active, healthy living for all ages.  Groups supporting “youth friendly”, “age friendly”, “walk friendly”, “bike friendly” and “safe communities” are but a few of the many efforts underway.

The Age Friendly Brockville group just launched their website and an initial survey to gather input from the community. You can learn more at the website here (including the survey).

As an aside, seniors are the fastest growing segment amongst those choosing to cycle, for both purpose and for pleasure! That’s why our design target for the Brockville Cycling Network is those aged 8 to 80.
