The Rec West Enrichment Center Serves Senior Adults

A new era in senior programming began in September 2015 when the Rec West Enrichment Center opened its doors at 965 Miamisburg-Centerville Rd. on the Washington Township Recreation Campus.

A total of 2,000 senior adults are now Rec West Enrichment Center pass holders, up from about 1,200 when Washington Township assumed sole responsibility for the community’s senior programming.

The Enrichment Center features 9,000 square feet of renovated space at the Rec West facility and includes activity areas, kitchen, dining room, equipped fitness room, office space and a landscaped deck. Another 20,000 square feet of Rec West space is shared – including a full gym added in 2015 as part of the renovation and a pre-existing professional movie theater, half-gym, dance studio, game room and large lobby where artwork is displayed.

Rec West, a 39,000-square-foot former cinema with six theaters, was adapted by the township for recreation programming in 2004. Dedicated space for seniors encompasses the two largest theaters, each about 4,500 square feet.

Enrichment Center Space

The Rec West Enrichment Center features open and flexible space with a circular traffic flow. Members enter through their own west-side door to a lobby area with a reception desk, comfortable seating, coffee bar and gas fire place. Around the corner, a dining room adjoins an art room that can be screened off for privacy or opened to create a space that accommodates large groups.

A full-service, commercial kitchen is connected to Rec West through a separate door and, when not in use by the enrichment center, is available for recreation programming and rentals. Large windows provide a view to a deck and landscaping that encircle the northwest corner of the building. There's also office and storage space, plus plentiful parking located near the Enrichment Center entrance.

More Space

Countryside Park also offers 26 acres for walks and outdoor activities. Next door is the Recreation Center with two pools, running track, two gyms, climbing wall and more fitness equipment. Enrichment Center members may purchase a membership for a reduced price. Details are on our membership page.
