Adapted Recreation

The City wants your input to make recreation more accessible for people with disabilities. What barriers do you experience when accessing recreation and leisure? What supports would make it easier? What types of adapted programming would you like to see?

Your feedback is important as we prepare an Adapted Recreation Plan that will improve accessibility within our City recreation facilities. We want to hear from anyone who experiences a barrier or supports someone who does to learn more about opportunities that exist for accessible recreation and leisure.

In June 2021, the City contracted consultants John Loeppky and Traci Foster from Listen to Dis’ Community Arts. Listen to Dis’ is a Regina-based, disability-led arts organization with a strong history of cultural and recreational programming, disability audits, and consultation work around inclusion and access. John and Traci are both disabled artists themselves, and each has been personally and professionally engaged in arts, culture, sport and/or recreation for many years.

Focus groups were held in July and August. This feedback will be integrated into a survey that will be shared with the broader Regina community later this fall. Sign up for updates to know when this survey launches.

Responses to this survey will be included in a report to City Council in early 2022 and will influence our next steps in making recreation and leisure more accessible for people with disabilities.
