Program Overview

The Gloria J. Parks Silver Enrichment Program offers a variety of free activities that keep our seniors active and engaged! Our program runs Monday through Friday, from 9:30AM-2PM. We offer a great space for making new friends, staying active and maintaining your health, and experiencing new opportunities and resources in our community.

To start, we welcome you to join us each morning at our center with a warm cup of coffee, fellowship, board games and fun with our *Good Morning Gloria* program! We also encourage you to share in a warm meal at the center each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 12p-12:30p. The lunch program is provided by the Erie County Nutrition program, meaning that each meal is nutritionally balanced, and only costs a suggested donation fee of $3 (but any amount is accepted).

A main focus of our program rests on helping you maintain your health and well-being, from stretch band fitness, to Hustle for Health (upbeat line dancing), to a relaxing session of Tai Chi. Even more, for those over the age of 55, we provide free access to our weight room and cardio room featuring treadmills, elliptical machines, and stationary bikes. You can also take advantage of our Certified Personal Trainer!

Membership to the Community Center is free for persons 55 years old and older. All activities are free unless otherwise stated. Seniors are encouraged to come by to take a tour of the center, which includes a weight and cardio room.
