Murray Senior Recreation Center
The Murray Senior Recreation Center is a recreation center for adults age 55+. The Center offers recreation and leisure-time activities, social services, nutritious meals, and educational, instructional and cultural programs for the general health and well-being of senior adults. There is no membership fee, but some activities have charges to offset the cost. A complete schedule of activities and fees is located in the monthly newsletter.
The Center is funded and operated by Murray City. Operations of the Center are directed by the Center Director, Director of Parks and Recreation, and the Murray City Administration, with the Murray City Council responsible for establishing policy.

Shredding Day on Friday, September 18 from 10:00-1:00. Salt Lake County Aging Services will offer FREE document shredding in the Center’s North parking lot. Special thanks to Salt Lake County Aging Services and Shred Masters for providing this service.
Approved items: All paper products (with staples and paper clips), file folders, checks and checkbooks.
Non-Approved items: black binder clips, larger metal pieces, carbon paper, cardboard, electronics, and plastic.
You will stay in your car until it is your time to put your shredding items into the bin. There will be volunteers in the parking lot helping with this process. There is no need to register in advance.
Virtual Personal Training: We will have a new virtual personal training program this fall, supported by the University of Utah Department of Health & Kinesiology. This class will start the first week of September. This is a free class. Because we continue to be closed, we have found other creative ways to keep you in shape. You will meet your personal trainers via the internet, in your home. Do not let that scare you, we will do our best to get you help with your computer needs. Seniors will be required to virtually meet their students twice a week for a total of 12 weeks. Program will end sometime in November. Seniors will be engaged with their personal trainer twice a week for 40-minute sessions. Meeting times will be arranged by seniors and students. The only requirement for the senior is to have access to the internet, a personal computer, and a video-based communication platform (Zoom for example). This program was offered in the summer to great reviews. Call the Center at 801-264-2635 to register for this class. Space is limited.
As of July 16, 2020:
$4 Sack Lunches for those 55+ on Monday through Friday. The sack lunch will include a sandwich (choice of white or wheat bread or a wrap and a choice of ham, turkey, or roast beef), bag of chips, pickle, fruit cup, and cookie. Instead of a sandwich, you may request a hamburger or bratwurst. The cost is $4. Please call us at 801-264-2635 between 8:00-4:00 the day prior to order your sack lunch. Payment can be made over the phone with your credit/debit card. We need prior notification so the kitchen can adequately prepare your order. As the Center is still closed, the sack lunches will be delivered to your car in front of our building (north entrance) between 11:30-12:30.
55+ Car Bingo every Wednesday at 9:00 until 10:30. There will be reserved parking for the first 20 cars ... call 801-264-2635 to reserve your spot today. Maximum two people per car (should live in the same household). We are providing the bingo cards and prizes (four games will be played). Please bring a marker, pen or pencil to mark your bingo card and a mask to wear while interacting with our staff from your car. When you arrive, check-in with the parking lot attendant and they will direct you to your reserved parking spot. We are only allowing those that have preregistered via telephone for the car bingo. The Center is still closed so there is no restroom access and we ask that everyone remain in their cars. Murray City has an ordinance against car engines idling - cars cannot be running while we play bingo so plan accordingly and don't forget your water.
Grief Support Class via Zoom. Jody, a Chaplain from Rocky Mountain Hospice, will discuss ways to process grief. The group meets twice a month via Zoom. Please contact Moe at 801-284-4240 if you are interested in participating.
The Murray Senior Recreation Center will be closed as of Friday, March 13, 2020 until further notice due to coronavirus concerns.
We will continue to keep everyone updated as we receive information. Thanks and please be safe!!
