At Sharper Vision Senior Recreation Center, we believe that the best way to age is to stay active and engaged.
That’s why we offer a dedicated multi-service senior center to serve as an active focal point where seniors can socialize, access services, participate in fun and educational activities, volunteer, and stay generally engaged with their peers and the broader community. Studies on seniors show that activities, socialization, and enhanced community relationships can prevent depression, decrease feelings of isolation and increase the quality of life.
We pride ourselves on being a place where everyone is welcome! Whether you’re looking to play tennis or just grab some coffee with your friends on our patio area, we want you to feel at home here with us.
