Physical activity and fun are important aspects of maintaining positive mental health. This is why the project in Hinton is focusing on providing access to recreational activities throughout the city to community members who may, otherwise, not be able to afford to engage in them. By offering 2-way transit passes and entrance passes to activities like swimming, skating, and bowling, everyone will have the ability to participate. They are also partnering with local agencies to offer accessible art and recreation activities that provide opportunities for social connection and a sense of belonging.
