50+ Adults

Emeryville Senior Center

Welcome to the Emeryville Senior Center. Since 1977, the Emeryville Senior Center has been a hub of activity for the community. The Senior Center offers a variety of services and activities for older adults ages 50 and over. Membership is just $30 a year. The Senior Center is housed in the Veterans Memorial, a 1930s Art Deco building. The mission of the Senior Center is to provide a comprehensive array of activities and services that promote healthy aging and contribute to the physical, emotional, and financial well-being of older adults in our community. The city would like to thank our major funding sources, including the Alameda County Transportation Commission and the Alameda County Area Agency on Aging for providing funding to support activities and programs for older adults.


The Senior Center offers a variety of leisure activities and enrichment classes within its facility and beyond. All of the classes offered for seniors are free with Emeryville Senior Center membership. Classes include: exercise, guitar, dance, yoga, Tai Chi, and so much more! To read descriptions on each class and to find the schedule, please refer to the latest issue of our Senior Center newsletter The LINK, Monthly Newsletter (PDF).


Our popular trips for older adults offer fun and casual day and overnight excursions. The Senior Center offers 4-6 trips every month*. Destinations vary from casinos, museums, plays, festivals and fairs, and many other local attractions. We also attend the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland every October, as well as many other overnight destinations. We offer extended travel opportunities to places around the world as well.
