Senior Activities

Letter to our seniors

We at the Parks Department are excited to bring new and exciting events just for the seniors in our community! 

The Parks & Rec Dept offers regular programming including fitness classes at the Elgin Rec Center and games at the Fleming Community Center, and are introducing stand alone events dedicated to seniors. With our new bi-monthly, potluck style, free programs, we hope that our seniors will have the opportunity to meet other members of the community and have some fun in our Parks facilities.

We know that you aren't "seniors" but rather, active older adults, so we hope this programming reflects that!

We look forward to spending time with you!

The Elgin Parks & Recreation Department

Stay in shape at the Elgin Rec Center!

Monday through Friday, join us from 8:30-9:30AM for Wildcat Walkers! During this time you'll be able to utilize the gym exclusively for doing laps in a climate controlled space. When you reach 100miles of laps in the gym, you'll win a free shirt! 

We also offer Senior Aerobics twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30-11:30AM. In this class you'll do a mix of brain games, balance practice and toning exercises. 

Get to know other seniors!

Every second Monday of the month, the Elgin Parks and Rec department partners with Drive a Senior to bring your BINGO! Join us from 2:00-4:00PM at the Fleming Center - Grand Hall to try your luck at BINGO. 

Game Group meets every Tuesday of every week in the Fleming Center - Grand Hall from 1:00-4:00PM to play board games and snack. If you'd like to join in the fun, please bring a complimentary snack to share. 

On the fourth Friday of the month, take your gaming to the extreme with Game Day! From 9:00AM-4:00PM, our seniors come together for a full day of play; you are encouraged to bring your own snacks.
