Whether you’re a recent retiree or someone enjoying life after 62, we hope you’re finding the best out of your golden years.
However, we recognize that it’s not always easy to find things to do in the city or make new friends as we get older — so we’re taking a look at senior resources across Sacramento county that are sure to have something to make even the Golden Girls green with envy.
One of the first places of its kind in California, the Hart Senior Center has been enriching the lives of older adults since 1961. Its name honors Ethel MacLeod Hart, who bequeathed her entire estate to the City of Sacramento for the “use, enjoyment, and comfort of senior citizens” after her death at age 104.
Located in Midtown at 915 27th St., the center offers classes + activities, like “Gentle Vinyasa Yoga,” social ping pong events, and line dancing lessons. It also hosts various workshops and groups for poetry, life history writing, book clubs, and art activities. Learn more.
