Parks and Recreation Department announces additional Senior Center Reactivation

The City of El Paso Parks and Recreation Department will be reactivating additional service to its 10 Senior Centers twice a week with full programming beginning Tuesday, October 12.

“Being able to phase back services at our Senior Centers has been a priority for the City of El Paso because the centers provide an avenue for health and wellness activities and socializing for our senior population,” said Cultural Affairs and Recreation Managing Director Ben Fyffe.

“The City has listened to our senior community, and with the help of staffing additions and by reaching a high COVID-19 vaccination rate in our community, we are now able to reopen all centers twice a week with full programming.”

All the City’s Senior Centers will be open from 9 a.m. to noon every Tuesday and Thursday with full reactivation of programming and activities that include the return of senior dances on select occasions.
