Coquitlam is hosting a series of activities, including drop-in pickleball, to celebrate BC Seniors Week (June 4 to 10).

Organizers of Coquitlam's Seniors Week believe residents aged "50 and better" should have a multitude of opportunities to thrive in the community.

Aspira Retirement Living and the city are finalizing the annual seven-day celebration for 2023, set to include several life-enriching activities at local civic facilities.

Scheduled for June 4 to 10, Seniors Week is recognized in B.C. every year to acknowledge the role seniors play in a growing society.

"At Aspira, we believe seniors should be able to live the vibrant life they desire and deserve," the organization said in a statement.

Coquitlam community recreation manager Jim Lacroix said city seniors activities are hosted at the Glen Pine and Dogwood pavilions.

That's where most Seniors Week initiative will take place, as well as Town Centre Park and community centres, including musical performances, drop-in pickleball, mid-day tea and even a hip-hop workshop.

Lacroix said a special passport has also been created for this year's event. Participants that attend an activity and earn three or more stamps will be entered to win a prize draw.

Interested residents 50 and over can sign up for the campaign starting Victoria Day Monday (May 22), and you can visit the City of Coquitlam's website for more information.
