Gunning Park Center is a wonderful place for older adults to enjoy a nutritious lunch, stay active and socialize with friends. As a part of GAC we promote a positive, friendly and warm family-like atmosphere, and we believe that each member is a very special part of the whole membership body. We are the only center that is located in a City Recreation Center, which allows us to provide a unique range of activities to our members. We offer activities and programs for active members as well as members who prefer a quieter atmosphere. For good preventative health assistance, we have health screenings and health lectures on a regular basis, and we offer special entertainment events twice a month.
The Gunning Park Center provides daily hot and nutritionally balanced Congregate (group) meals to elders (age 60+). The Congregate lunch meals are available at no cost to seniors; donations are accepted.
