Forever Young Senior Centers

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​We provide a gathering place for older adults (age 55 & up) to socialize and participate in special events, lunches, games, arts & crafts, exercise, as well as local shopping trips and excursions.​
Currently, recreation centers are closed through June 10, 2020, and reopening will continue to be reassessed as the State allows. City parks are open, as of May 22, 2020, dog parks, skate parks and tennis/pickleball courts are open. Additional park amenities, as outlined in our FAQ, remain closed at this time. Although recreation centers are closed, our Virtual Rec Center is open, visit the Seniors' Corner for activities and resources to remain active. 

Questions? Please refer to our FAQ, sign-up to receive email newsletters, or visit the Virginia Beach emergency website

CDC guidelines for social distancing, limiting groups to 10 or less, handwashing, and other protective measures should continue to be followed.
