The Pinole Senior Center, a program of the City of Pinole, opened its doors at 2500 Charles Avenue on December 9th, 1991. The Center’s home is a 15,000 square foot facility, which was awarded the 1995 California Parks & Recreation Society’s Facility Design Award.

The Center provides social, educational, recreational, health, nutritional, and consumer services and activities to our more than 1200 yearly participants. The Center is a community focal point for West Contra Costa County area seniors, age 50 and over, and has established for itself an outstanding reputation as one of our County’s best Senior Centers. Under the guidance and leadership of our City Staff and the 11 member Board of Directors (elected by the membership), over 12 working committees provide the hands on assistance needed to support Center programs, activities and fundraising.

The Center is unique in that it is truly governed by the seniors themselves who work hand in hand with the Center staff in the development, management and evaluation of Center programs and activities. The center board and volunteers have raised over $250,000 every year to support the operation of the Center. Additionally the Center is also supported by the efforts of its non-profit arm, the Pinole Area Senior Foundation.


Looking towards the next five years the Center would like to accomplish the following:

Expand services for Seniors just entering retirement.
Expand participation in current programs / classes.
Continue to expand our membership roster.
Raise funds to refurbish interior of our Senior Center.
