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.
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.
Virtual Personal Trainer: You may have participated with the University of Utah students through personal training or their overall fitness class; they will be coming again this summer through a virtual class. The only requirement for your participation is access to the internet, a personal computer, and a video-based communication platform (Face Time or Zoom, for example). Participants will be required to virtually meet with their students twice a week for a total of 10 weeks. Meeting times will be arranged by the student and the participant. The University of Utah will be supplying you with an exercise equipment kit which will include two dumbbells (3 or 5 pounds), a resistance band, and a 55-cc stability ball. This summer program will start mid- to late-May. This equipment is a gift to you for your participation in this program. If you are interested in participating, please contact Moe at 801-284-4240.
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!!
