Get to know the Golden Circle

Since 1977, the Centre has provided programs, activities, information, resources and outreach for older adults, their families and caregivers.

For over 45 years, the Golden Circle Senior Resource Centre has been redefining what it means to embrace the golden years with joy, purpose and a whole lot of heart.

Our roots trace back to 1958 when the need for a dedicated recreation center for seniors in Red Deer was recognized. With humble beginnings, a beloved meeting spot was born, sparking the vision for something more.

In 1975, the Kiwanis Club took the lead in a $100,000 project, forming a diverse committee with the City of Red Deer, and more. Securing a prime site and a construction grant marked key milestones. Construction commenced in 1976, and after meticulous planning, including Red Deer’s inaugural telethon, “the Golden Circle” emerged out of a community contest as the perfect name.

On April 28, 1977, our doors officially opened! Fast forward to 2009, major renovations refreshed the center, ensuring its continued vibrancy.

Today, over 45 years since inception, we stand as a thriving hub for older adults, fostering a legacy built on community, dedication, and golden moments.
