At the Spacious and Beautiful Norman Park Senior Center in Chula Vista A Wide Variety of Dancing, Educational, Exercise, Meal and Singing Classes are just some of the Many Programs being Offered to South County Residents.

This last summer, Aaron Ruiz left big shoes to fill when he left his role as Program Director of the Imperial Beach Boys & Girls Club for a job with the City of Chula Vista Parks and Recreation Department. With the Clubhouse closed for remodeling at the Boys & Girls Club in Imperial Beach as part of the expansion of the Boys & Girls Club of South County, which operates the Imperial Beach  program, Aaron's responsibilities have been filled in by Stephanie James and David Chang who have both done an excellent job filling Aaron's shoes there. 

On the other side of this, Aaron has been working for Chula Vista with their senior's department and has had talks with IB Mayor Serge Dedina to let him know that seniors are welcome to use the Chula Vista's senior programs to fill in activities not covered by Imperial Beach programs.

The Imperial Beach Senior Programs are held at the  Senior Center located in Veterans Park next to the Library on 8th St. Their address is 1075 8th Street, Imperial Beach. The Senior Center is open to individuals age 50 and over, and they extend a warm welcome to individuals with disabilities. The center offers a variety of life-enriching classes, activities, hobbies, and a fun social environment. The center also serves as a great resource center for seniors. They offer a free legal service, free tax assistance during tax time, and a blood pressure clinic once a month. 

The Imperial Beach Senior Citizens Center in Veterans Park is open Monday through Friday.
