About 55+/Seniors Services
Today, the recreational needs of older adults are different than years ago. In Richmond, older adults span a large age range, are culturally diverse and are very active within the community.
The City of Richmond, Seniors Services and community partners together offer a variety of recreational, cultural, educational and social opportunities for those over the age of 55.
Throughout Richmond, programs and services for those 55+ years are offered at most community facilities, as well as Minoru Place Activity Centre. Please refer to the Recreation and Culture Guide for program and service details or view specific facility details online.

Older Adults Service Plan - Active and Healthy Living in Richmond
The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services (PRCS) Master Plan 2005-2015 identified "older adults" (those people over 55 years) as a key service area. In 2006, an "Older Adults Service Plan Steering Committee" was formed, representing a spectrum of stakeholders including older adults, Community Associations, non-profit agencies and City staff, to provide input into developing a service plan.
The plan was endorsed by City Council in May 2008 to support the vision of making Richmond a community where "engaging and valuing older adults" is paramount to developing personal health and active living. For more information, read the Older Adults Service Plan below.
