Lending Programs

There are a variety of lending programs throughout Hastings and Prince Edward Counties to help you get moving. Some of these programs are listed below.

Urban Poles

Urban poling is a physical activity that combines walking with poles similar to ski poles. It can be done by people of any age at almost any level of fitness, and can be done outdoors anywhere at any time.

Urban Poling Kits are available for loan to community groups and workplaces.  The kit contains everything needed to start an urban poling program, including 10 pairs of urban poles for up to six (6) weeks.
