The Senior Center - "A Community Resource"

About the Center...

The Department of Recreation and Parks sponsors a full range of activities to entertain our seniors.  Residents must be age 60 and older and reside within the Village of Garden City. 

Our Senior Center is located behind Lord and Taylor's parking lot on Golf Club Lane.  The newly renovated Center has been enlarged to accommodate both senior groups and all senior programs the Department of Recreation and Parks is offering. The Senior Center is also available to rent for private parties when not in use by the seniors. 

Senior Programing

Some of the many programs offered to senior residents ages 60 and older are Chair exercise, TaiChi, Meditation, Yoga, Games days, speakers, lunches, and much more!  Please check our senior events page for our monthly calendar and all our offerings.
