Equipment loan programs have become a popular community program due to the results of the pandemic and the need to provide self-directed recreational programming opportunities. Community equipment loan programs are here to stay as community recreation services continue to build inventory varying from skate rentals to larger equipment pieces like stand-up paddle boards, handcycles, bicycles, hippocampes and more! Recreation Nova Scotia is happy to support recreation practitioners in navigating the logistics of starting and maintaining an equipment loan program.
