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
These group meetings provide individuals with an opportunity to engage in activities of interest or experience. Club settings are a great place for social interaction while developing one's skill with a particular hobby! All of our clubs run year round so you can join anytime!
Come enjoy a variety of card games like Poker, Canasta, Pinochle and more!
This meal is on us! Recreation center staff will pull together a table of tasty food and provide a welcoming atmosphere to socialize with your neighbors and make new friends. You must preregister (two days in advance) to participate.
