Providing service to seniors since July 4, 1992, the Chanhassen Senior Center offers a welcoming environment and hosts an array of activities and programs for individuals age 55 and older. Recreational, educational, health and wellness programs, monthly special events, day and extended trips, senior clubs, cards and woodcarving are just some of the favorites. 

Whether you are newly retired, new to the Chanhassen area, or looking to get involved, take time to visit the Senior Center and you will discover one of Chanhassen’s most popular destinations! We’d like to note that while our service area is primarily Chanhassen, we gladly welcome residents from all surrounding communities.


The mission of the Senior Center is to establish an inviting setting that enhances quality of life and maximizes use of leisure time for seniors. The center strives to provide a variety of programs and classes of interest for seniors of all ages. It is a fun, welcoming place for people to meet new and greet old friends!
