Active Aging for Seniors

Active Aging is the process of taking part in a variety of activities in order to optimize wellness and enhance quality of life as you age. The Active Aging movement is important for all people because it extends healthy life expectancy and quality of life. Social participation and social support are strongly associated with good health and well-being throughout life. Participation in physical, social, culture and spiritual activities allows older adults to continue to exercise their competence, maintain positive relationships, and improve their overall wellness.

The Senior Center in Central Park has gone virtual for fall! We realize many of our participants are staying close to home, some of you taking small steps by going to the store, grabbing take-out, or dining outdoors. The Senior Center in Central Park is dedicated to providing services to make your time at home a bit brighter.

This fall, we are happy to offer some of our same great classes and instructors, but in the comfort of your own home! The Senior Center in Central Park, in partnership with Huntington Beach Council on Aging, is excited to announce fun activities for fall.

  • A Halloween drive-in experience.
  • A winter concert with dinner for the holidays.

The Senior Center in a Box distribution will continue twice a month along with some other surprises!

To ensure you continue to be informed on all of these exciting activities, please check out our website at huntingtonbeachca.gov/sccp and follow us on Facebook. Registration for virtual classes begins Tuesday, August 25, at 7:30am.

We look forward with great eagerness to the day when we can welcome you back! Please contact the Senior Center in Central Park at 714-536-5600 for any questions you may have
