Welcome to the Centre Region Active Adult Center. We have a very active Center with over 500 participants throughout the year and we hope to see you there soon!  The Centre Region Active Adult Center, formerly known as the Centre Region Senior Center, is located in the Nittany Mall, just outside of th old Sears location, and is open to adults, ages 55 and over.  The Center offers a wide variety of classes, activities, screenings, and events that suit almost any lifestyle. Whether you prefer a morning of line dancing followed by a meal at the Center, or a game of Bridge and a cup of coffee, the Center is sure to have something for you to enjoy!

The Centre Region Active Adult Center is operated by the Centre Region Parks and Recreation Authority, and supported financially through the Centre Region Council of Governments and the Centre County Office of Aging.  The Centre Region Active Adult Center is one of six senior centers in Centre County.  Through the Center's relationship with the County, the Center is supported programatically and financially, and the Center also must meet and maintain certain standards and protocols for its services to the participants.  The Centre County Office of Aging also provides additional resources, coordinates the county-wide meal and transportation programs, and assists in a myriad of other ways.

Our goal at the Centre Region Active Adult Center is to promote healthy aging through our many recreational activities and health forums as well as life-long learning through a variety of classes and social interaction. The normal operation schedule typically has the Center open and providing services Monday-Friday, 8 AM-3:30 PM with some additional programming in the evenings and weekends.  However, for months, the Center has either operated on a modified schedule or has been closed completely.  Due to mitigation changes by the PA Governor and the State and County Offices of Aging, the Centre Region Parks and Recreation Agency’s plans to re-open the Center are moving forward. 

When the Center re-opens, it will operate under limited hours due to the on-going pandemic and it will remain operating with limited capacity to continue to protect our staff and our customers.  The Center will reopen on Wednesday, April 14, and it will be open on Wednesdays and Fridays.  Wednesdays will be for in-person activities and Fridays will be for outings to other facilities within our local and regional communities.  To read more about the Center and the COVID-19 Safety Plan that will be in place when the Center re-opens, please use this LINK.

Participation will be by reservation only, and Centre County Van Transportation to the Center will be available as well.  To make a reservation to attend the Center or to inquire about other services, please contact the Centre Region Active Adult Center at 814-231-3076 or via email.
