Toms River Senior Center is open Monday thru Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
Senior Citizens make up a large percentage of our residents in Toms River Township. The Toms River Senior Center is the perfect place which offers seniors a place to go and enjoy themselves.
Good health is a primary concern of seniors and the Center addresses that concern with a variety of programs from blood pressure screenings, eye exams, hearings exams, and cholesterol screenings together with classes on health and nutrition.
Since exercise is a critical element of maintaining good health, the Center offers a variety of programs from Zumba, exercises, yoga, line dancing and a walking club.
More sedentary activities are available such as water color classes, a knitting/crocheting club, genealogy club, game day, cards and much more. A wide variety of celebrations for special events are spread out across the calendar starting with a St. Patrick’s Day party in March, followed by the Art and Tea Party in April. One of the highlights of the celebrations in May is Cinco De Mayo followed by an International luncheon in September. A Halloween costume party is one of the most popular of the season which everybody has enjoyed for years and during November the Center hosts a Veterans Luncheon and ceremony in honor of the Senior Veterans who have participated in World War II, Korea and Vietnam Wars.
Probably the most anticipated and welcome program is the HeadStart Intergenerational Christmas Party in December. This particular party allows the senior citizens, particularly those whose grandchildren do not live in the area, to interact with the pre-school and kindergarten children from the Ocean County HeadStart Program.
All of the activities at the Center are FREE and transportation to and from The Center is provided if needed. The Center provides an opportunity to mingle and you are certainly welcome to visit the Center and see for yourself what an outstanding facility and great programs Toms River provides for the seniors.
