Seniors/55+ Exercise & Drop-In Programs

Garden City Community Centre is pleased to offer programming for Seniors/55+ Retirees in Winnipeg. The Seniors/55+ program was established to help create affordable activity for seniors and retirees in our community. By offering exercise, dance, yoga, and various gaming activities we hope to improve the overall mental and physical health of our participations. Participations are encouraged to help lead and promote the program by teaching and assisting new participants, car pooling, and positive reinforcement.

The program is guided by our Seniors/55+ Council which is comprised of seniors currently active in the program. The council’s mandate is to ensure quality programming which meets the needs of our community and it’s participants.
