City's Senior Center Makeover Celebrated with Rededication
There were a lot of oohs and ahhs as a standing-room only crowd gathered to celebrate the rededication of the City's Senior Community Center on and admire the facility's modern makeover.

Gorgeous new flooring, fresh paint, and plush furniture were added to make our senior center even more inviting - and maneuverable
More than 50,000 seniors a year take advantage of the many classes, celebrations, and activities at the Senior Center.
From quilting and crafts to Zumba and bingo, the Senior Center is a wonderful place for residents 50 years and older to meet new friends, take a class, and even grab a bite to eat.
The Family Services Association offers lunch Monday through Friday for just a $3 suggested donation.
In the summer, it is also one of our City’s Cooling Centers, providing residents with an air conditioned space to escape from the heat. In the winter, it is a warming center.

The Center’s banquet hall is also available to be rented out by the public for events.

The Senior Center is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Seniors 50 and over are welcome.

The Moreno Valley Community Senior Center is located at 25075 Fir Avenue in Moreno Valley.

Come by and play a game of cards, shoot some pool, or take a class!
