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 offer support services and a variety of free or low cost recreational, social and educational opportunities at the Ashland Senior Center and other locations.

Hours, services and activities are subject to change due to public health and staffing conditions. All activities require registration, and public health precautions such as masking and physical distancing may be required. For more information, call 541.488.5324 or email seniorinfo@ashland.or.us.
