Recreation

Fort Collins Senior Center#

The Fort Collins Senior Center provides adults an opportunity to access and engage in recreational opportunities, stay active and socialize. The Senior Center's diverse program selection includes travel, outdoor adventure, special events, fitness, art and more. The Senior Center is open to all adults but specialized in programming for adults 50 years of age & up. 

NCOA's National Institute of Senior Centers (NISC) is a program with nine standards of excellence for senior center operations. These standards serve as a guide for all senior centers to improve their operations and position themselves for the future. The NCOA accredited the Fort Collins Senior Center in 2016.
