Seniors 55+ Programs

There’s no age limit on staying active in Barrie. The Allandale 55+ Centre and Parkview Centre for 55+ offer recreation, education and fitness opportunities along with events and workshops for individuals 55 years of age and better.

While some facilities have reopened, the City currently has no approximate reopening date set for seniors centres. We want to be extra vigilant about keeping seniors safe as they are a high-risk group.

Special Program During COVID-19:
Seniors Centre Without Walls

Connect and engage with other seniors through multi-person phone calls! This program is run by 55+ Centre staff and community partners. Enjoy a variety of topics each week ranging from informal coffee chats and fun brainstimulating games to health and wellness seminars and educational talks. The program is free and open to all seniors in Barrie.

Please view the weekly guide for program and schedule details. To register, email or call 705-739-4223 and leave your name and phone number. Recreation staff will follow up with you.
