Welcome to the Roswell Adult and Senior Center, located at 807 N. Missouri, where adults meet to socialize and enjoy learning new things or expanding what they already know in a safe environment. The Center has been serving adults over the age of 18 for almost 40 years. The facility was once the Memorial Youth Center but with the closure of the Walker Air Force Base the City of Roswell decided to attract seniors to this area to help the economy - and it worked! The adults soon outgrew the facility that they were using and saw a great possibility to utilize this center. The youth were moved to the Yucca Recreation Center, a former middle school, and is still at that location with many programs directed to the youth of the community.
The Roswell Adult & Senior Center covers a square city block. A playground and park area on the east side and on the west side a park, horseshoe pits and shuffleboard courts. A beautiful walk/bike trail surrounds the area. The trail leads West to the Enchanted Park or east to the Zoo. The RASC has parking on three entrances into the building with handicap accessibility on two sides, the west and north sides. There are 13 rooms in the facility and eight bathrooms. The rooms are used for different activities, events and are also rented to the community or organizations.
A current class schedule offering over 30 classes is available daily at the front desk. Classes that are offered include weaving, glass art, ceramics, painting, dance, yoga and exercise. Most classes are $25.00 for a ten week session. There is also a cardio-room that can be utilized for a minimal cost. The Center also offers a monthly newsletter, RASC Courier, free of charge to anyone, which can be mailed, emailed or picked up in the lobby. The RASC has two computers for the public’s use and a computer lab for classes.
Whether you’re an avid bridge player, an antique car enthusiast, quilter, rockhound, pool shark, artist extraordinaire, photo nut, or a social butterfly you will thrive here. Come by and let the staff give you a guided tour. Smiles are free.
