Our Covid-19 Response

The Board of Directors and staff of the ParkSide Centre remain committed to our membership. We would like to make sure that if there are any issues that you need addressed, please contact John Richer at 705-673-6337 ext. 225 or via email at john.richer@greatersudbury.ca. We are encouraging people to act responsibly during this time and to stay at home whenever possible. We want to see you all back at the ParkSide Centre once this crisis abates.

During our Covid-19 closure, we will continue to offer the programs and activities our members have become accustomed to through ParkSide Centre Without Walls. We can still maintain contact with the outside world during this time of self-isolation. By clicking on the title, you will see the great list of programs we have and there are more being added everyday.

The ParkSide Centre Board of Directors has also provided local seniors with an additional support. At their last monthly meeting, the Board unanimously agreed that membership would not be required for program participation during the closure of the Centre. People will be able to participate in ParkSide Centre Without Walls programming for the same rate that members receive.



We enable older adults to explore their potential…
