Contact Information

Parks & Recreation Department1000 Krenek Tap Road979.764.6341
Senior adults (ages 55+) are invited to participate in outdoor programming at the Lincoln Recreation Center and Meyer Senior and Community Center. We're still evaluating when indoor programming will return, and we'll continue to base our decisions on federal, state, and local guidance that prioritizes public health and safety.

Outdoor programming offers senior adults an opportunity to get active, stay healthy, and engage with others. We have a variety of programs to choose from, and a membership isn't required. Class sizes are limited to 20 and require advance registration. Participants are encouraged to bring their own coffee, drinks, and snacks. Food and drinks are not available.
