EVRPD to Provide Dedicated Space for Seniors at the Estes Valley Community Center

Estes Valley Recreation and Park District (EVRPD), provider of numerous recreational and community activities in Estes Valley, is excited to provide dedicated space in the Estes Valley Community Center (EVCC) for the Estes Park senior community.

Having this dedicated space will offer seniors a place to enjoy hot coffee, socialize with friends in a quiet area, play games, complete puzzles, create art and crafts, take a leisurely walk on the indoor track with stunning views—all at no cost.

In addition to the free amenities, there will be many educational and cultural programs available for free. Seniors can also enjoy a nutritious, hot lunch once a week for a fee of $5 per person thanks to a three-month pilot program provided through a grant from SupplyWorks.

“Our goal is to keep the Estes Park senior community up to date about the latest information, exciting new program schedules, construction progress and services offered at the community center,” said JoAnn Batey, Vice President of the EVRPD Senior Advisory Committee. “In addition, we want your feedback about what you would like offered at the new facility.”

To keep the senior community abreast of updates at the community center, they have established an email list to periodically send out information. You can sign up to receive these emails at evrpd.com/senior-advisory-committee or contact Heather Drees, EVRPD Administrative Assistant at (970) 586-8191 and she can sign you up on the list.

The five-member Senior Advisory Committee was established in August 2017 to be the bridge between the Estes Valley Recreation and Park District and the Estes Valley seniors.

The Estes Valley Community Center continues to stay on schedule for a late February 2018 opening. At the most recent project status meeting, Adolfson and Peterson Construction, the company guiding the project from start to finish, announced that the construction progress exceeded 95 percent completion.
