The Town of Danville has numerous enrichment and wellness programs planned for daily participation at the Danville Senior Center. Participation in activities such as senior yoga, stretching and low impact aerobics continue to grow and provide astonishing results for those older adults who are committed to improving their health.
Many active adults are attending daily, weekly or monthly sessions in exercise, cultural arts, excursions, and themed special events. The activities continue to be well received from people with all different skill levels and interests.
The Town of Danville provides activities for all activity levels and interests and, most importantly, it allows time for people to interact with each other and share similar interests and talents while meeting on a regular basis.
Please drop by the Danville Senior Center to share any program ideas or if you would like to learn about volunteer opportunities.
The Danville Area Senior Hikes (DASH) are open to all adults and meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month. The group will set out from the Danville Park-n-Ride (next to the Sycamore Valley 680 North exit) at 9:00 AM and return about 1:00 PM. Most hikes are not strenuous, but gradients are involved due to the local terrain. Distances are usually in the 4- to 5-mile range, and the pace is moderate, with stops to view scenery, wildlife and to talk about location history when appropriate. Trailheads are reached via carpools; passengers are asked to make a donation of 10 cents/mile to the driver. If you think that you are physically active and want to join us for the for the open air, great scenery, fascinating nature, and friendly companionship. DASH will be held on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month.

Being in nature makes me feel alive. I feel lucky to have this beautiful, serene place so close to home. I want my grandkids to have the same appreciation for parks.
