Summer Activities for Duncan Seniors

August 9th, 2022

Our summer is here, and even if it has been cooler and rainier than usual, let’s make the best of it. Here are some ideas for summer activities for seniors living in or near Duncan, BC.

Go to the Ocean

The ocean by Duncan is the Georgia Strait. The temperature of the water varies quite a bit in the Georgia Strait unlike the open ocean on the west side of Vancouver Island. That means that in the summer, the water temperature may be as much as 18 degrees Celsius. That may feel cool to some seniors or it may feel very refreshing on a sunny day.

If you just want to get your feet wet, then you may prefer going when it is low tide which is easy to look up online. Even without getting wet, it feels good to see the ocean and waves and get some fresh air and sunshine.

Valley Seniors Activity Centre

The Valley Seniors Organization has a Centre that is open all year round. It is located at 198 Government Street in Duncan and has lots of activities to choose from every day of the week. They charge a yearly membership fee and offer low-cost food and meals to members as one of their benefits.

Duncan Farmer’s Market

Go visit the farmer’s market. The farmer’s market is open every Saturday from early April until the end of October from nine in the morning to two in the afternoon at 200 Craig Street. There are all kinds of vendors of produce, food, and crafts from local artisans. This is a great outing even if it’s cool or overcast. You don’t have to buy anything! Just take a walk around and get some fresh air.
