Sport and Recreation Council looking for partners

By Lindsay Advocate

The Kawartha Lakes Sport and Recreation Council has been working with partner organizations to launch a pilot program called the Accessible and Adaptive Recreation Project (AARP)

The focus of the AARP is to create accessible recreation opportunities through multi-activity programming that is adapted to be safe and age and ability appropriate. Activity offerings will be made available in a rural CKL community and a guide to accessible and adaptive recreation will be created. The end goal will be to create a sustainable model for the multi-activity program for participants of all abilities to be active to the extent of their interest.

“By 2020, the City of Kawartha Lakes will be recognized for its progressive leadership in sport and recreation which has allowed opportunities for all people to be active to the extent of their ability and interest.” said a spokesperson for the Kawartha Lakes Sport and Recreation Strategy.

Sport and recreation organizations in the community are encouraged to participate in this 2019 pilot project. All interested parties should fill out the expression of interest form that can be found on the KLSRC website here.
