Spanish explorer Ponce de León may or may not have found a literal fountain of youth, but modern researchers and a generation of active adults have certainly discovered one for themselves. The real secret to longevity and quality of life? Staying fit and being active!

To build community and promote good health in our aging population, Burnaby is home to four 55+ Centres. Two are located within recreation centres and the other two are stand alone. Social, educational and recreational hubs for citizens of a “certain age” (55 is the new 35, some say!), these centres are great spots to meet new friends, take dance and art classes, karaoke, sample great food during restaurant outings, and generally have a blast with a fascinating and friendly mix of people. As for staying active, see if anyone can keep up while you join in on exercise classes, table tennis, snooker, bridge, hiking, badminton, shuffleboard, Nintendo Wii, Tai Chi or chess.

55+ Centres

55+ Membership Fee

To take part in the 55+ activities, you need to purchase a membership. You can use the single centre fee if you usually take part in activities in only one centre, or you can use the multi-centre fee if you enjoy taking part in activities in more than one centre. If you’re a Burnaby citizen 90 years or older, please contact your local 55+ Centre regarding a lifetime membership. Note that many classes are open to non-members for a slightly higher fee.

Single Centre: $18.90 per year
Multi-centre: $45.30 per year
