Parks & Rec offers senior lunch and transportation to Lubbock senior centers

Provided by: City of Lubbock

Seniors can beat the summer heat at Parks and Recreation's five senior centers! Seniors of all ages can enjoy fun and fellowship in air-conditioned comfort as they participate in our daily recreation activities, fitness programs and even enjoy a nutritious lunch.

Each senior center offers many free or low fee activities geared for Lubbock's active adults ages 50 and above, including arts and crafts, sewing, games, ceramics, yoga, seated yoga, cooking, computer classes, dance socials and much more.

Baby boomers and older, active adults that want to stay physically fit can use a variety of fitness equipment at no cost to the participants. The equipment varies by center and includes treadmills, elliptical machines, recumbent bikes, stationary bikes and weight machines.

For older Lubbock seniors (age 60 and over), we have two programs that are available weekdays throughout the year. First, if transportation is an issue for a senior, we are able to provide transportation to and from their homes to one of our centers! In addition, we serve a hot, nutritious lunch at 12 p.m. every Monday through Friday at our five centers.

There are suggested donations for each program, but no one is turned away for inability to pay. The suggested donation for transportation is $2 per round trip and for lunch is $3 per meal. Those participants not yet aged 60 are able to purchase a lunch for just $5.

For more information on our senior programs or to register for the transportation program, call the Lubbock Senior Center at 767-2710.
