Our senior center is a home away from home for many Lancaster residents. It offers an exciting variety of activities. Chances are, whatever’s on the agenda on any particular day, our senior center will be bustling.

Looking for free exercise classes, art classes, or opportunities to socialize with others? Weekly activities promote fun, friendship, continued learning, community involvement and wellness. We offer quality opportunities to learn, stay fit, improve health and most importantly, laugh and have lots of fun.

Staying (or becoming) active as we age, provides many benefits. Being social keeps the mind sharp and staying active kick stars your immune system to keep you healthy for years to come.

Senior Center closings due to inclement weather are listed on WGAL TV 8.

The Lancaster Rec Senior Center is funded, in part, under an Agreement with money allocated by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging and the Lancaster County Office of Aging.
