Join Austin Parks Foundation as we provide much-needed maintenance at one of Austin's most utilized and important recreation centers!

The Senior Activity Center - Lamar opened its doors to the public in 1978 as the first senior center of its kind in the City of Austin. Located at the southeast corner of 29th Street and North Lamar in the heart of Austin and a short distance from the University of Texas, the center functions as a total community, special-use resource facility and provides an optimum environment for the development of sound physical and mental health for people 50 years and older.

The Senior Activity Center – Lamar offers instructed classes, health and wellness programs, educational seminars, workshops, trips, dances, volunteer opportunities, support groups, special events, meeting space and private rental space.

Let's show this valuable community resource some love by sprucing up the outdoor areas. Volunteer will be:

  • Replanting large agave plants 
  • Cleaning up and maintaining the Habitat Garden
  • Cleaning the small courtyard 
  • Helping to prep the small garden area

We will provide tools, gloves, and fresh, cold drinking water - PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN WATERBOTTLE to reduce waste. We will also provide music for motivation and KIND bars for snacks!

We look forward to having you all out at the Lamar Senior Activity center! We will meet at the front entrance of the center.
