Denver Parks & Recreation's Active Older Adults (AOA) program engages adults ages 50+ in wellness, exercise, and leisure activities that support healthy aging. AOA programming includes aquatics, fitness, outdoor day trips, lunch trips, drop-in activities, clubs, arts and crafts, dance lessons, and more!


SilverSneakers® is an Older Adult and Senior exercise program that is provided free to members of select health care companies. The intent of the SilverSneakers® programs is to provide opportunities for older adults and seniors to attend regular exercise classes to improve health and prevent simple injuries. Denver Parks and Recreation allows cardholders to drop-in on other activities in addition to exercise classes. Our goal is to introduce older participants to a culture of exercise and activity, which can extend to drop-in games, drop-in to our weight rooms and aquatic facilities at participating SilverSneakers® Centers.

Some of the Classes are:

SilverSneakers Classic, Circuit, Cardio, Yoga, and Splash

PICKLEBALL is a fun game that is a cross between tennis and ping pong. The game is easy for beginners to learn, but can be a fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players as well.
