We support neighbourhoods and local organizations to utilize recreation to build community connections.

“Recreation is the experience that results from freely chosen participation in physical, social, intellectual, creative and spiritual pursuits that enhance individual and community wellbeing.” 

Pathways to Wellbeing, A Framework for Recreation in Canada, 2015

Recreation has the ability to break down cultural, class, and identity barriers, improving the quality of life for all Edmontonians. Building Community Through Recreation engages people and builds social cohesion by strengthening community connections through the use of recreation, which can lead to reduced isolation and healthier, more vibrant communities. 

Building Community Through Recreation Network Events

City sponsored gatherings where recreation providers discuss local programming, share information and make connections in neighbourhoods.
