Founded in 1968, Center in the Park is a non-profit community center in Northwest Philadelphia primarily focused on the needs of older people. The Center fosters respect, independence, and personal growth for each individual. As a community resource, it provides access to supportive services and activities.

The programs at Center in the Park are meant to provide opportunities for older adults to participate in social, recreational, health and fitness, arts and humanities and lifelong learning activities. Members are encouraged to make their voices heard at the Center and in their communities through service and volunteer opportunities.
