Community Center and senior centers are coolest places in town
The Redlands Community Center and the City’s Senior Centers are the coolest places in town! As the summer heats up, the Joslyn Senior Center, Community Senior Center and the Community Center are cooling down.
The National Weather Service predicts excessive heat and a prolonged period of very hot weather for inland valleys, deserts and mountains as early as Thursday and continuing through July 4, with the possibility of record-breaking temperatures.
In addition to providing a place to escape the extreme heat, Redlands Cool Centers offer pleasurable, informative, and enlightening programs in a relaxed and secure environment. People in the community are encouraged to enjoy the day away from their high temperature homes and come down to either Senior Center Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or the Community Center Monday through Friday from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. to beat the heat. The Community Center and Senior Center located at 111 W. Lugonia will also be open on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
A donation from Stater Bros. Markets will also provide more than 2,000 bottles of water and nearly 1,000 granola bars for the Cool Centers.
Join us for all the fun! Spend the day in air conditioning! Cool Center activities include: puzzles, cards and games, craft class, exercise class, and more. All activities are free. Discover our regular classes and activities during the day too.
Each of the centers will also provide special events during the summer. There are a variety of activities to get involved with. Come on by and see what’s new.
The Joslyn Senior Center is located at 21 Grant St., and the Redlands Community Center and Senior Center are located at 111 W. Lugonia Ave. For more information on Recreation activities, please call the center at (909) 798-7572 or (909) 798-7550.
