Top Activities for Seniors in Phoenix

By Michael Watson

Phoenix is a city known for a wide range of activities, both indoors and out. Many of these activities are geared towards members of the senior community and also offer significant senior discounts. Learn more about some activities for seniors in Phoenix, AZ.

1. Civic Space Park

Civic Space Park is a non-traditional park in the sense that it is environmentally focused and the majority of the attractions are based on environmental sustainability. However, in addition to the rainwater collectors, the park also contains many traditional features, such as walking trails and sitting spaces.

Additionally, 70% of the park is considered heavily shaded. The park is also located directly adjacent to light rail and bus transit stations, making it a convenient staging ground for additional activities in the area.  

2. Golf 

Phoenix and the surrounding communities are home to over 200 total golf courses and are considered a national destination for golfers. Many of the locations also offer yearly packages with built-in discounts for seniors and are tailored to a wide range of skill levels, making it easy for any golfer to find a location they are comfortable with.  

3. Desert Botanical Garden

Many visitors to the Phoenix area are shocked to discover just how amazing the Desert Botanical Garden is. They just don't expect such a high level of biological variety and beauty from such a traditionally barren area. In addition to the natural scenery, the gardens also feature a wide range of musical and performance events. General admission and yearly packaged both come with a respectable senior discount. 

4. Bingo

Phoenix is home to a wide range of bingo halls. Bingo offers seniors the chance to not take part in some low stakes gambling, but the air-conditioned halls also act as a social hub for many of the areas more active senior communities.
