The Inglewood Senior Center, located at 111 N. Locust Street in Inglewood, is probably one of Inglewood Senior Citizen’s best kept secrets from their peers who have not availed themselves to the full range of services, classes, and camaraderie that is available at what must certainly be of the most enviable Senior Citizen Centers in the nation.

The Inglewood Senior Center is a warm and friendly home away from home for seniors, ages 50 and over, who can enjoy a variety of activities, holiday celebrations, parties and classes, have a hot lunch, participate in clubs, take trips and excursions, and volunteer to help others.
With a grand opening celebration of the 35,000 square feet, state-of-the-art facility, that cost 27 million dollars, in January, 2018, Mayor Butts said at that time that he had never seen a more superior facility.
