Relocation of Water Street Senior Centre
The Parkinson Senior Society previously operated out of the Water Street Building downtown. With the future re-development of the waterfront and expansion of Stuart Park, the centre has been relocated to the Parkinson Activity Centre. The new location, in close proximity to the Recreation Centre and Park, offers a number of advantages to seniors, including ample parking, convenient transit service and improved security.
For background information, please see the Senior's Centre page.
