Rockmosa Older Adult Centre

Conveniently located at the Rockwood Library, the Rockmosa Older Adult Centre hopes to offer a wide range of social, recreational and educational activities and programs geared towards our 55+ community.

We recognize that our population is aging, the number of seniors in Ontario will more than double by 2036 and it is our goal to encourage active, healthy and informed aging within our community.

The Rockmosa Older Adult Centre features a kitchenette, social gathering area with a television and gas fireplace, and ample folding tables and chairs.

Members with key fobs will have access to the Centre between the following hours:

Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 8:00 pm

Saturday and Sunday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

The room will be open to non-members during drop-in programs, workshops and special events.

The Centre will be closed on Statutory Holidays.
