Senior Activities

Letter to our seniors

We at the Parks Department are excited to bring new and exciting events just for the seniors in our community! 

The Parks & Rec Dept offers regular programming including fitness classes and games at the Elgin Rec Center.

We know that you aren't "seniors" but rather, active older adults, so we hope this programming reflects that!

We look forward to spending time with you!
