Who is Confederation Park? What's its role?
Confederation Park 55+ Activity Centre is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization working to help older adults reap the benefits of an active lifestyle.
The Centre provides a vibrant and stimulating atmosphere for maintaining and enhancing the mental and physical well-being of Calgary’s adults. Members enjoy a variety of dance, music, art, technology and exercise classes taught by some of the top instructors in the city. Member's clubs satisfy many interests and create a lot of laughter and fun.
Our weekly Tea & Conversation Program is an opportunity to gather with the other guests and members of the community. Together we build new friendships, nourish old friendships, and become part of the Confederation Park T&C FAMILY.
Confederation Park is the second largest older adult centre in the city of Calgary. More than 740 older adults stay active through participating in 35 classes per week in activities like music, dancing, art and card playing. We’re serious about promoting a fun and lively atmosphere because we take health and well-being seriously. We respond to the needs of older adults by connecting them with opportunities for social interaction, education, and volunteerism through clubs, classes and activities. Everything we do is designed to promote mental and physical well-being – and to have fun while we’re doing it.
The Centre is housed in a building overlooking beautiful Confederation Park, a crescent shaped park of more than 160 hectares. The public can stroll along a stream in the manicured recreational park, throughout the park are mature deciduous and coniferous trees. The trees, shrubs and aquatic vegetation provide habitat for a considerable variety of birds and other wildlife.
