Opening Monday, April 5: Larkspur Community Center, Home of the Bend Senior Center,  is currently closed. Schedules and reservations available on Tuesday, March 30.

Older Adult Activities:
The Oregon Health Authority guidance continues to require that senior centers remain closed. We advocate and offer to provide our input and feedback at every level we have the opportunity. We partner with Oregon Recreation and Park Association, the governor’s regional solutions coordinator and Deschutes County Health Department at every possibility to inform decisions and prepare to respond accordingly. We eagerly await a time when it’s safe to reopen Bend Senior Center and resume in-person social activities for our older adult patrons.
