Senior Fitness Centers

Please note: The City of Irvine has taken several precautionary safety measures to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our community. In accordance with state guidelines, community centers and indoor facilities are open by reservation and appointments with limited capacity. Outdoor recreational spaces including parks, playgrounds, and athletic fields and courts are open with modifications. 

The Harrel Fitness Center at Rancho Senior Center and Trabuco Center Fitness Center are open with reduced capacity and modifications for distancing and safety, by reservation only. Learn more here.

All three Irvine senior centers remain closed for drop-in services. Modified in-person and virtual recreation activities are available at Senior Services will continue to provide essential services such as a modified Congregate Meals Program, Meals on Wheels, and social services via phone. The Congregate Meal Program is now a delivery-only service to active, registered participants. This service will be offered in place of meal pick-up to discourage gathering members of the public in a central location. For more information on the Congregate Meal Program, please call the Senior Services & Community Support Hotline at 949-724-6926.
