Amherstburg Seeks Input On Recreational Programming

The Town of Amherstburg is surveying residents by age group to determine what sort of recreational programming they want now that capacity limits are being reduced and the Libro Centre is opening up.

“The information collected from these questionnaires will ensure that as many residents as possible have an opportunity to participate in recreational activities,” says the Town on the survey page. “This is an exciting opportunity to bring the type of recreational programming which appeals to all residents, regardless of age and ability.”

There are surveys for six age categories, from children under 6 to 55+. There is a separate survey for the Drop-In Turf Tots program, seeking to learn how to improve the program and what sort of items parents would like to see introduced.

General questions and comments can be emailed to [email protected].

I just filled out the survey for the 36-to-54 demographic and picked from a list of activities the ones in which I’d be interested in participating, like Family Game Night, Yoga and Mindfulness, Music and Martial Arts. There were all kinds of options. 

I'm going to sit down with my 12-year-old daughter as well and let the Town know what kind of activities she'd like to see. She had a blast taking an art course at the Libro shortly before the pandemic shut everything down. Other parents are likewise encouraged to fill out a survey with or on behalf of their kids. 

Please take the opportunity to fill out the survey before the end of the month.

It only takes a few minutes but it will help the Town provide programming the residents want and maximize the use of the jewel that is the Libro Centre.
