Letter to our seniors
We at the Parks Department are excited to bring new and exciting events just for the seniors in our community!
The Parks & Rec Dept offers regular programming including fitness classes at the Elgin Rec Center and games at the Fleming Community Center, and are introducing stand alone events dedicated to seniors. With our new bi-monthly, potluck style, free programs, we hope that our seniors will have the opportunity to meet other members of the community and have some fun in our Parks facilities.
We know that you aren't "seniors" but rather, active older adults, so we hope this programming reflects that!
We look forward to spending time with you!
The Elgin Parks & Recreation Department
Stay in shape at the Elgin Rec Center!
Monday through Friday, join us from 8:00AM-10:00AM for Wildcat Walkers! During this time you'll be able to utilize the gym exclusively for doing laps in a climate controlled space. When you reach 100miles of laps in the gym, you'll win a free shirt!
We also offer Senior Aerobics twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30-11:30AM. In this class you'll do a mix of brain games, balance practice and toning exercises.
Keep up the fitness in our Pilates / Yoga Flow class on Mondays and Fridays from 10:30-11:30AM. This class is perfect for all ages and helps center you with breathing, balance and movements choreographed to music.
Get to know other seniors!
Monday through Friday the Elgin Recreation Center in partnership with Elgin's Drive a Senior Program offer the Senior Coffee Social Club. Grab a free cup of coffee and socialize with other seniors from 8:00AM-11:00AM while enjoying the couches and tables in the Elgin Rec Lobby.
