Programs and Events

The Rosedale Senior Center provides educational, social and recreational opportunities for active seniors age 60 years and older. New and exciting events are happening each month; read about all the programs in our newsletter, "The Rosedale Review"  (PDF).

A variety of classes from art to exercise are offered each week. The most popular class is aerobics with strength training, where a combination of aerobic steps are integrated with strength resistance from exercise bands. Newer classes like Yoga and Zumba Gold are also offered, as well as familiar favorites such as Ceramics and Color Painting. Many travel opportunities are offered each year. Trips ranging from a one-day Eastern Shore crab feast to a week-long stay in Orlando, Florida, ensure you can find the perfect vacation.

It All Started in 1974

The Rosedale Senior Center opened September 16, 1974 at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. In those early days the center operated two days a week as a Nutrition Lunch Plus site. As the years progressed, so did the center's programming, and it was moved to Rosedale Elementary School. In the summer of 1995, the school requested back the space the center occupied for classrooms. In January 1996, the current home of the Rosedale Senior Center was constructed as a 5,800-square-foot freestanding building on school grounds and the center opened a full five days a week.


Today seniors at the Rosedale Senior Center pride themselves on being a part of a friendly center that loves to laugh. Special events always draw a crowd for great food and music. Some of these events include: Member Appreciation Lunch, Bull Roast, Father's Day Breakfast and the Crazy Fashion Show.

Volunteers Make the Difference!

Volunteers are an important part of the Rosedale Senior Center and its operations. Volunteers contribute by serving and cooking meals, purchasing supplies, coordinating special events, managing the front desk, and much more. Many center volunteers contribute by knitting baby hats and blankets for Project Linus, a community service project.

Join the Center

Rosedale Senior Center is one of the Department of Aging's 20 senior centers. Senior center membership is open to all Baltimore County residents 60 years of age and older and their spouses, regardless of age. Non-county residents 60 years of age are also allowed to participate at the center on a space-available basis. There are no fees to attend or join the center, although some activities, classes and trips may have fees.

A center enhancement campaign raises funds for center beautification. In recent years, with the funds donated by our members, we have been able to purchase armchairs, blinds, a chair rack, a digital camera and more.

Stop by (get directions), call 410-887-0233 or email We encourage you to take advantage of all of the opportunities of interest to you.
