We miss seeing you at our Centers so we thought we might bring some activities to your home to keep up the fun. We want to challenge you to complete some exciting scavenger hunts in and around your home.

The Parks and Recreation Department challenges you and your family to a 30-Day Fitness challenge!

Nature is all around you, even in the big City. Whether on a family walk or if you are an explorer on your own, we invite you to find all the items on our Nature Scavenger Hunt!

The Parks and Recreation Department invites you to play Lotería with items you can find at home. Just like bingo, you can play to fill all the boxes, or you can play a quick game to see who can finish a row first. Play indoors or outdoors, but be safe and have fun!


We have assembled a variety of activities that are available online, and below are links to help keep you and your family entertained and learning some cool stuff.

Learn more about AgeWell Services! 

AgeWell Services wants everyone to be aware and help spread the word regarding their Social Call Program, which has been running for 15 years. This is a free service in which individuals, ages 55 and older, will receive a daily phone call (Monday to Friday). A daily phone call can really brighten someone's day who doesn't have many social connections. Please pass on this information to family, friends, neighbors, and community organizations who serve older adults.
