Nittany Mall SignNew Location

The Centre Region
Senior Center
is located in
the Nittany Mall.

After evaluating many potential locations in 2015, the Centre Region Parks & Recreation Authority finalized the details for the new home for the Senior Center inside the Nittany Mall, near the Sears store. Our thanks to the Nittany Mall for welcoming this transition. The temporary 3,225 square foot space opened there in Sept. 2015. 
Senior Center Hours: 
Mon-Fri, 8 AM - 4:30 PM

(closed on Holidays)

The CRPR Active Adult Center will open in its new location--a new and larger space--in the very near future!

UPDATE Oct. 24, 2016: The Centre Region Senior Center will relocate in mid-November to the new, larger space inside the Nittany Mall (near Sears, per the map below). A fundraising campaign is currently running and donations are being accepted by the CRPR Authority for supplemental improvements to the new, permanent space for the senior center.  Please read our "Best Days Ahead" Campaign Summary and print a Giving Form to make your pledge today!

Upon opening, the new center will be named the Centre Region Active Adult Center - the same great experience with a new name! We will tentatively host a"soft" opening in mid-November. Continue to watch for an official December Grand Opening Announcement on this website and on the CRPR social media pages.
