The Senior Services Division of the Ashland Parks and Recreation Commission enhances the lives of seniors by promoting healthy aging, well-being, dignity and independence. We empower older adults as valued, contributing members of the community and together advocate for the diverse needs of the seniors and their families throughout Ashland. We normally offer support services and a variety of free or low cost recreational, health promotion, and educational opportunities at the Ashland Senior Center and other locations.
