East Oakland Senior Center

Located at the Ira Jinkins Park in Oakland's Brookfield neighborhood, this Center's programs emphasize exercise, nutrition, crafts and computer instruction. At the on-site Clinic, seniors can access community health care services each morning. Special events, celebrate holidays such as Juneteenth and Earth Day. Line dancing is a popular class, and the Center's choral group performs at venues throughout the area. The facility is available for public and private events.

The City of Oakland Senior Centers will Remain Closed until Further Notice

Based on guidance issued from both California and Alameda County Public Health experts the best way to control the spread COVID-19 is for people to stay home and away from crowds and social spaces unless necessary. This is particularly important for older adults and people with compromised immune systems or with underlying health conditions. We will continue to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 and reopen Senior Centers when we believe it is safe for our members.

Please see the links for Senior Center Classes and Services open to the public. While Senior Center membership provides access to a wider variety of programs and services we recognize how important it is for us to extend our amenities to the broader Elder community during this time of crises. We hope that you join our Senior Centers Without Walls open access and decide to join our community as a member.
