Garner was very proud to help meet the needs and desire of its senior population when it constructed the Garner Senior Center in 1990. This multipurpose, 6,800-sq.-ft. facility serves as a focal point for senior/adult programs and activities.
With its overwhelming growth to over 2,500 registered participants, the need for a new addition was determined, and in 2006, a half-court gymnasium, restrooms, changing rooms, an exercise room, a catering kitchen, storage area and office space were built as part of this facility. Senior and adult activities can now include indoor sports, yoga, exercise classes and events that were unable to be offered before due to space limitations.
The renovated Senior Center continues to serve the community well as it provides additional recreation and cultural arts activities for adults and seniors. The facility is available for rental by non-tax-exempt groups or individuals for activities such as reunions, birthday parties, baby showers, church functions and weddings. It is reserved on a first-come, first-served basis for public and private events.
The space is available weekends and some evenings. Groups and individuals may reserve the facilities by contacting the Garner Senior Center. Reservations are accepted 90 days prior to the event.
