Boston: Councilors Explore Need for Senior Rec Center in Roxbury

~ The City of Boston has adopted a resolution to explore the need for a senior recreational center in Roxbury. Prior to 2020, the Shelbourne Community Center provided senior programming twice a week; however, since the COVID-19 pandemic, there have not been any senior programs or services available. Councilor Fernandes Anderson proposed that Roxbury needs a state of the art facility and programs that meet the holistic needs of seniors while also providing activities that promote fun and leisure. This is similar to other cities such as North Philadelphia and Rockville in Maryland which have dedicated spaces for senior recreational centers outside of community centers. Seniors in Boston have served this city for decades, contributing to its growth and success.
