Mt. Olympus Senior Center is located directly west of the Lion’s Fitness and Recreation Center at 1635 E. Murray-Holladay Rd.
Formerly known as East Side Senior Center, the center was initially operated out of the Christ United Methodist Church. The present Mt. Olympus Senior Center building was completed in 1997.
Since Mt. Olympus first opened their doors, the center has been an eventful, lively center offering a surplus of educational classes, lectures, fitness and well-being classes. Mt. Olympus has a very active and educated community that loves to give back. Many participants are active volunteers that teach classes at the center as well.
Do you have a hobby, skill, or talent you’d like to share? Volunteering is the “heartbeat” of the Senior Center. Volunteers play a critical role in delivering quality programming as well as providing options for fit, active and engaged seniors. Without our volunteers, the center would not be able to provide as many activities to the participants. The Center has a wide variety of opportunities for all ages to volunteer time and talents. As the gap between available resources and the needs of seniors continues to grow, Salt Lake County Aging & Adult Services believes the role of volunteering will continue to be vital. We are always looking to add new programs and presentations at the Center. To find the volunteer opportunity that best suits your needs, skills, and time availability, please give us a call or drop by the center.
The center offers a wide range of programs. We consider the center a place where participants can be involved in an abundance of classes and special activities. We provide classes from Poetry to French and just about everything in between. For those wanting to explore their creative side, the center offers opportunities in art, such as, ceramics, oil, water and tole painting, and even knitting/crocheting. We are proud of our health and exercise programs which include; Tai Chi, Pilates, Meditation, EnhanceFitness, Yoga, Dancing, and Strength Training, as well as a scenic outdoor walking trail, and a treadmill and exercise bikes. The participants who attend the center also enjoy games; they play Bridge, Skipbo, Pinochle and a variety of other games, such as Mexican Train Dominoes, backgammon, Table Tennis and billiards.
