ENJOY AN ACTIVE LIFESTYLE
Life at this unique housing complex is far from “retiring” in the conventional sense of the word. At Peoples Park Tower, we believe that overall wellness includes physical, spiritual, social and cognitive dimensions. Therefore, tenants can take part in an active and outgoing social scene, participating in a multitude of activities ranging from regular fitness classes and games night to social teas, concerts and even an annual talent show.
Peoples Park Tower employs a full-time Activity Coordinator to assist in the planning of recreational and social activities for the residents of the facility.
Weekly Newsletter & Monthly Activity Calendar
A newsletter is issued weekly, providing information about upcoming events and news within the building. A monthly activity calendar are distributed to each apartment monthly and posted on the bulletin boards to inform tenants of what is planned for the month.
Fitness classes are offered in Rose Hall three times a week. An exercise room is also on site with cardio and strength training equipment. During the warmer months, you can join the Walking Club for a stroll through the beautiful West end neighbor that surrounds Peoples Park Tower.
Games Room & Lounges
On site you’ll find a number of comfortable lounges to gather with friends to play cards, work on a puzzle or to just to sit and catch up on the days’ events. Tenants can also take in a friendly game of darts or billiards in our games room.
Located on the second floor of Peoples Park Tower is our library managed by in-house volunteers. For all those who love to read, a wide selection of non-fiction, mystery and romance are available. Donations of books are always welcomed.
The Peoples Park Tower Chapel is a special gathering place, where its serene ambience and beautiful stained glass windows make this a wonderful, restful sanctuary for prayer, reflection and worship. Catholic, Anglican and Interdenominational services are offered regularly throughout the week.
Outside, winding paths ramble between beautiful flowerbeds and past a number of carefully tended garden plots – a testament to the pride and care invested by the many green-thumbed tenants of Peoples Park Tower.
Senior Citizens’ Club
The Park Tower Senior Citizens' Club is a member of the New Brunswick Seniors Federation, Maple Leaf District which advocates on behalf of seniors across the province, on a variety of different issues. With over 250 members within the Peoples Park Tower complex, the Senior Citizens' Club is a busy organization.
On a day-to-day basis, the Club is committed to providing entertainment and social activities for the tenants of Peoples Park Tower and works very closely with our Activity Coordinator helping to plan our bi-monthly parties, dessert & card parties, bingo and much more. They also lend their support to a variety of community causes through their affiliation with Helping Hands, which raises funds for health-related issues. In the past, donations have been made in support of local hospitals, battered women, and cancer patients.
