55 Forward - City of Maple Grove Parks & Recreation
The 55 Forward Programs, provided through the Maple Grove Parks and Recreation Board, offer a variety of programs, classes, special events, and trips. Find something you love to do or want to learn more about. Programs are designed around several "domains of well-being," a model with options in the physical, artistic, intellectual, financial, emotional, and social realms.
Take a class in oil painting, learn to Nordic Walk, go on a bike ride, join with friends in a game of bridge or 500, participate in yoga or swim fitness, sit back and enjoy the sights on a trip, have a discussion on current events... these are just a few of the offerings available through Maple Grove's 55 Forward Programs. More information here.
A variety of registration-based 55 Forward offerings are now available! Click here for the latest information. However, due to COVID-19, the Maple Grove Senior Center currently is not open for drop-in programs.
