The Recreation Access Program is a program to help ensure all residents have access to leisure, recreation and fitness opportunities. We value providing socially inclusive programs to each individual and family in Grande Prairie. Providing this program to eligible participants removes financial barriers while enhancing community and family connectedness.
The program offers a 75% subsidy on Eastlink Centre memberships and punch passes to qualifying applicants. Qualifying members will also receive a 75% subsidy off of dryland recreational programs, such as our Learn to Play programs and Seasonal Camps. This enables participants to access the facilities for only 25% of the regular fare.
Participating facilities include:
- Grande Prairie Museum
- Muskoseepi Park (Ernie Radbourne Pavillion)
- Dave Barr Community Centre
- Eastlink Centre
- Heritage Discovery Centre
- Coca-Cola Centre
- Grande Prairie Activity & Reception Centre
To be eligible, applicants’ income must not exceed the Low-Income Cut-Off level determined by Statistics Canada +30%.
Applications to access the program can be completed year-round. Proof of address, household income and documentation for dependent children are all required for the application.
