Senior Center


The mission of the Gaston County Senior Center is to respond to the ever-changing needs of senior citizens and their families; to affect in positive ways their quality of life; and to assist in maintaining their independence. 

The Gaston County Senior Center is located at 1303 Dallas-Cherryville Highway. The senior center is a very active senior center which provides programs and services that support the senior residents of Gaston County in their efforts to remain healthy, active and independent members of the community. We welcome you to tour the center and pick up a calendar of events and services offered by the center.

The 6200 square foot addition to the Citizens Resource Center has expanded the room for dances and large events. It also includes a, wellness room that includes weight equipment, a treadmill and recumbent bike, craft/multi-purpose room and computer room/library. With the new space comes new programs such as tai chi, yoga stretch and arthritis exercise classes, computer classes and special services such as legal aid and tax preparation.

We are having our soft opening of the Senior Center Monday June 15th - this opening is for the programs on the attached calendar ONLY. You MUST call and RESERVE your space for EACH program.
The only people who will be allowed in the center are those reserved for the program currently taking place, this means if your program begins at 2pm, come with enough time to go through the screening process and attend your event. Please, do not come while the earlier events are taking place at 10am & 12pm.
The kitchen, gym and computer rooms will remain CLOSED at this time.

As always, while you are attending these programs that you have preregistered for, we ask that you practice social distancing and proper hygiene.
