The Park District of Oak Park together with the Senior Citizens’ Center of Oak Park and River Forest (SCCOPRF) serve community members 50 and older through active and creative programming that focus on social and cultural activities.

A variety of arts programming is available including: paper arts, painting, lapidary art, ceramics, weaving, and stained glass. We also offer recreational programs in fitness, game days, educational classes, discussions, movies days, and book clubs.

Active Adult Members enjoy free and heavily discounted fees with purchase of a Membership card good for 1 year. Cards can be picked up at Dole Center M-Th 9-3pm. Please reach out to our Active Adult Coordinators Helen and Nancy to arrange a tour or a Membership Card pickup time.
