Active+ Over-Fifty Programs
The Burns Community Center is becoming Lakewood's healthy-activity hub for the baby boomer generation who don't fit traditional stereotypes for seniors.
Lakewood boomers are more active than their predecessors.
'To meet their needs, we're offering fitness and special interest activities in our new 'Active+' program,' says Lakewood Community Services Supervisor Caitlin Cariaso. New programs are added every season to meet the interests of our residents.

"Staying active physically and mentally are keys to good health," says Valarie Frost, Director of Recreation and Community Services. 'With more and more baby boomers over the age of 50, we are trying to offer interesting activities and programs that are either free or low cost to participants.'
