  • Registration of activities will be promoted through activity organizers, who will be available for questions during the sign up period in the Athletes Village.
  • Volunteers will compile the required participant information and participants need only come to St. Lawrence Park. Volunteers will then direct the participants.
  • There is also an opportunity to “drop” in on some activities.
  • An activity schedule will be distributed to all those participating on Thursday, August 26.


Activities that take place during the day will be very different from the two OPEN Canadian Championship Events (5/10km Road Race) that will take place at St. Lawrence Park in Brockville on August 26, 2010. These will be run through our Sports Technical team and knowledgeable volunteers. See more on these events here>>

All Active Living Day activities are FREE OF CHARGE for everyone 55+! You only need to come to St. Lawrence Park on Thursday, August 26 beginning at 9 a.m. It’s a great way to rub shoulders with the Games participants and enjoy the celebration!

As always, St. Lawrence Park is open to the general public while Active Living Day is taking place and Park visitors are invited to watch the action, listen to the live entertainment, and take advantage of the special services!
