Creating Community

Opportunities to come together as a community, to celebrate our heritage, cultures and milestones, and to have social supports available are keys to creating a sense of community.

Active & Healthy Lifestyles
Active living, physical development and a healthy body and mind are among the most critical elements of a fulfilled life. We provide the tools necessary to begin, sustain and expand active and healthy lifestyles and to incorporate health and wellness practices into everyday life.
Creative Outlets
Opportunities to express oneself through the creative arts can result in great self-discovery and the enrichment of mind, body and spirit. Skill development and performance opportunities in a variety of interests provide the outlets to nurture this creative discovery.
Youth Development
Healthy children, in mind and body, are indicative of a community committed to an environment in which youth can flourish. We aspire to provide youth a variety of experiences that nurture individuality, spark imagination, and build the skills needed to ensure success in the next stage of development.
Lifelong Learning
Community members benefit from a wide array of Enriching and Lifelong Learning opportunities that provide mental stimulation, self-improvement, exploration, educational opportunities and skills that can be applied at home or business.
Environmental Stewardship
Publicly managed natural resources ensure that current and future generations will enjoy the environmental, social and economic benefits derived from our urban forest, parks and open spaces. Our role is to preserve, protect and nurture these resources as places for people and other living things to thrive.
