The Garland Senior Activity Center has closed for renovations as part of the 2019 bond program. While the center is closed, many of the activities and programs will continue at other recreation centers, primarily Gale Fields Recreation Center, 1701 Dairy Road.
Senior programs and activities such as bingo, chair exercise, Fitness Plus, painting, ceramics and Creative Crafters classes will be offered as close to the usually scheduled days and times as possible. Day trips and extended overnight trips will continue to be offered. Visit GarlandParks.com for updated program schedules.
The senior meal program will continue without interruption. The drive-thru and pick-up meal program will be moved to Carver Senior Center, 222 Carver St. Participants who are currently receiving delivered meals will continue to receive delivered meals.
The $4 million project at the Garland Senior Activity Center will provide a new fitness area, kitchen upgrades, millwork, flooring, lighting and front desk reconfiguration — creating a welcoming atmosphere. Senior Activity Center patrons will return to find their fitness area, one of the more popular features, will be doubled in size with new equipment added. There will also be increased space in the game room and warming ovens in the kitchen. Construction will take about a year.
