To design and build an outdoor recreation park at St. Peter's Hospital, in Hamilton, to promote general fitness and recreation.  The park would be customized for seniors but include pieces that appeal to kids of all ages!

It would include stations that are wheelchair accessible for patients with mobility issues, quiet/rest areas, a wheelchair accessible station with a garden bed and recreational equipment for visiting grandchildren.  Physical activity is a vital component of a healthy lifestyle but becomes especially important as we age. 

This park would allow our patients to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors, while improving their health and staying socially connected.  This will have a powerful impact on our patients mobility, independence and quality of life.  Young or old, we are all kids at heart and that is the feeling that will flow through this innovative park at St. Peter's Hospital.
