Front Porch for Active Adults

Golden Community Center Front PorchThe Front Porch area of the Golden Community Center offers a special place for Active Adults to gather. Located on the upper floor of the Center, just off 8th Street, the Front Porch is a perfect place to meet new people, gather with friends, enjoy a cup of coffee, read a magazine, relax, and just enjoy “being.”

The Front Porch offers outdoor adventures, trips, health programs, special events, games, clubs, and sports teams. There are also volunteer and social opportunities available. Front Porch offers a variety of activities on a drop-in basis – no need to register. Make a point to stop in, and socialize a bit!
