More About Pikesville Senior Center
The Pikesville Senior Center is a great place for people ages 60 and older to socialize and find fellowship.
Each season its 1,200 members enjoy access to 60 courses, from Spanish language and wood shop, to reverse glass-painting and T'ai Chi. Community College of Baltimore County offers some of the classes.
The center, located on the second floor above the Pikesville Library, boasts a variety of meeting, activity and game rooms, sitting areas, a pool table and movie viewing room featuring a big-screen TV.
Nationally known musicians perform three times a year during the center's "Super-Special" concerts. Each weekday the fitness center is open, and kosher lunch is catered.
Members can join in a bridge group or bicycling club, or they can get services such as Home Team volunteers who help Pikesville residents stay in their homes. Through CountyRide, members can get transportation to shop or to make doctor appointments.
The county Department of Aging funds the facility and its programs, led by the Pikesville Senior Center Council, a non-profit organization.
