Active Older Adult Programs

COVID-19 Information

The San Marcos Parks and Recreation Department is looking forward to resuming in-person Active Older Adult activities.  As we move forward, not all of our programs will be brought back immediately.  Some programs will return in the fall. Some programs will be modified to include social distancing and, unfortunately, some programs may not return. A few of our partners have undergone their own changes and will no longer be able to offer their sponsorship and assistance that we enjoyed before COVID-19. We would like to thank these sponsors for their support of our programs over the years. 

The Activity Center is no longer closed from 1-2 p.m. daily, for cleaning. This has allowed us to return to the originally scheduled times, of some of our programs. Please see the new times for specific programs by viewing our updated July-August edition of our Out and About Newsletter or by selecting the program from the menu on the left of this page. The Activity Center remains closed on Thursdays.

All participants in any San Marcos Parks and Recreation Program must agree that they have read and understand the City of San Marcos Parks and Recreation Department Release and Waiver of Liability and will have to check a box that Constitutes Acceptance of said Release and Waiver. Please click here to view and sign the Release and Waiver of Liability..

For those not ready to attend in-person, indoor Active Older Adult programs, the City of San Marcos Parks and Recreation Department is still your go to place for recreation, leisure, education, health, and wellness resources through COVID-19. We are committed to ensuring that our community members have the resources to maintain healthy and meaningful lives while they wait to return to in-person events. Please visit our Active Older Adult Virtual Recreation Page  and our Virtual Recreation Center for numerous activities, classes, tours and adventures for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home.


The primary objective of the San Marcos Parks and Recreation Active Older Adult Program is to enhance the quality of life of active, older adults in San Marcos and the surrounding area. Our goal is to promote a healthy, active lifestyle by providing quality informational, educational, physical and social enrichment opportunities.

Additional Information

You may have noticed when registering for classes, many state that they are for ages 60 and above.  This is because the “senior” discount at The San Marcos Activity Center is now available for individuals aged 60 and above. We will be using age 60 when referring to “senior” activities, to avoid any confusion.  Our Active Older Adult programs will be for ages 60 and above unless otherwise noted.
