Senior Recreation Center

The Senior Recreation Center provides a safe, welcoming, and energizing environment where our community’s adults 55 and over can enhance their quality of life by engaging in a healthy and active lifestyle. Urbandale is committed to its senior citizens and our Senior Recreation Center is a great example of how our community makes good on that commitment! 

The programs and services offered by the Urbandale Senior Recreation Center that help keep life interesting, enriching, and fun are certainly no secret. With over 40,000 in attendance each year, these seniors certainly challenge the idea that growing old means slowing down!

We are excited to expand our in-person programs and amenities. For the health and safety of all our participants, face masks and social distancing are highly recommended. We are working to provide a wide variety of programs that we can offer in compliance with current health guidelines. In addition, many of our current offerings on Zoom will continue.

Please check out the June/July edition of the Senior Newsletter for information on our current operations or our August/September edition of the Senior Newsletter for what is coming up next month. We look forward to having you join us when you are comfortable!
