Senior Activities

Your chance to shine and focus on yourself

Park Ridge Park District works hard to ensure seniors in our community have an array of options for staying active and engaged. First, there’s our S.T.A.R. membership, where there’s always something going on, no matter what your interest. Throughout the year, an array of S.T.A.R. clubs, activities, trips, and events are offered. You're bound to discover new interests and new friends.

Then there are the exceptional programs and outings we offer adults, giving you a chance to enjoy time with others. In fact, the hardest part about taking advantage of all that’s available is deciding what it is you want to do first. View the programs below.

4230312 / Fun with Facercise

Fun with Facercise Do facial exercises help with aging? Facial exercises are a great way to keep your face looking and feeling young and fresh. Your face is made up of over 50 muscles and just like muscles, they get stronger the more you use them. Join us for this fun and interactive session as you stimulate the flow of new blood to the face. Bring a mirror for use in class and also learn various inexpensive ways to create a home beauty spa using every day items to compliment your new facercise routine. Instructor: Aleca Breneman. CAC
