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.

This month at Center In The Park...

As part of the fifth anniversary of Let’s Move!, the First Lady, Michelle Obama, is encouraging Americans across the country to give out high-fives when they see someone making healthy choices. And she’s challenging everyone to #GimmeFivethings they are doing to eat better, be more active, and lead a healthier life. Here is Center in the Park’s Positive Aging response to FLOTUS’ #GimmeFive Challenge . . .
