Various types of recreation programs are offered and include, but are not limited to, arts and sports, camps, swimming, as well as adapted programs including adapted social events. Adaptive equipment is available for some programs.

Sledges

Sledges are adaptive skating devices that give people with disabilities the opportunity to participate in leisure skate and hockey activities.  This equipment makes our facilities more accessible to all.  Book your sledge a minimum of 10 business days before your intended use by calling your district recreation staff.

Snoezelen Room

A Snoezelen Room provides a multi-sensory environment that allows individuals with disabilities to enjoy gentle stimulation of the primary senses, including visual, tactile, auditory and aromatherapy.  This room aims to provide an oasis of tranquility where the use can relax and be given the opportunity to choose an activity at their own pace.  Session times must be pre-booked in advance.

The City of Toronto’s Welcome Policy (WP) helps low-income individuals and families, who live in Toronto, access City-operated recreation programs.

If you are approved for WP, you will receive an annual financial subsidy. The subsidy is a recreation credit that can be spent on any of the wide variety of high-quality recreation programs offered by the City throughout the year. You must have an approved WP before you register for any programs with the recreation credit.

Torontonians receiving social assistance automatically meet the income requirements and should speak to their caseworker about WP.
