In addition to its regular programs (see our New Bern Parks and Recreation chapter for more information), the New Bern Parks & Recreation Department offers a number of special programs for seniors only, including dancing and exercise classes and a softball team. The department also hosts clubs devoted to special interests, such as model airplanes, miniatures, stamps and coins, needlepoint, ceramics and more.

In addition to clubs and classes, the department organizes special events for seniors only. Senior Activity Days are scheduled for Mondays and Fridays for adults age 55 and older at the West New Bern Recreation Center. Activities include table tennis, billiards, shuffleboard, basketball, badminton and more, while those who enjoy less active pursuits can partipate in chess, checkers or just walking around the gym. The department also sponsors the Golden Age Club for seniors age 55 and older. The club meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month at the West New Bern Recreation Center for fun and fellowship, with special trips planned throughout the year. For more information about Senior Activity Days or the Golden Age Club, call (252) 636-4061. The Henderson Park Senior Citizens Club, the oldest club of its kind in North Carolina, meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month at the Stanley White Recreation Center; for information call (252) 636-4062.
