Silver Sneakers Program

Seniors Get Their Fitness Free!

The Department of Recreation & Youth Services strives to provide fitness and recreation opportunities for all of Dayton's community members--including the elders who want to make their golden years the best they can be with a healthy, active lifestyle. That's why we accept Silver Sneakers membership to any of our three recreation centers.

Now, senior citizens don't have to work out at home to save money! With the Silver Sneakers program, our most experienced recreation members can benefit from an Annual Senior Combo Pass for no cost. Call (937) 333-8400 to speak with one of our staff members about using your Silver Sneakers membership to acquire the combo pass.
