55+ Active Adult Programs Information

Montgomery County Recreation started its 55+ Active Adult Programs (formerly called Neighborhood Senior Programs) in the late 1950’s, before there were five-day a week senior centers. Active Adult Programs are a wonderful opportunity for individuals 55+ to gather for educational, social, sports, and entertainment programs, and places to make lasting friendships. We offer programs two days per week at the sites listed below.

We are excited about growing at these locations and reaching more Active Adults. We encourage input and feedback from every source, and new ideas are always welcome. All of our groups are diverse and offer exciting programs for participates in the communities they serve. Along with exercise, dance, educational, and social activities, we also offer a variety of special programs and events. Montgomery College Lifelong Learning classes are offered at a number of locations along with classes offered by many of our community partners. Everything from lectures on current events to Art History and appreciation are offered.

Check us out at any of our locations. We’re sure to have something for everyone! Our locations, days & times include:
