Senior Center

North of the River Recreation and Park District proudly offers activities for seniors ages 60 and over at two centers in Bakersfield. Rasmussen Senior Center and Greenacres Community Center provide a wide array of activities as well as lunch Monday through Friday throughout the year. Over a hundred seniors visit our centers daily to take part in activities from bingo to billiards to fitness classes, painting, quilting and more. Live music and dancing fill the centers every day and is wildly popular with our participants.
