Southfield Senior Services Activities

Parks & Recreation Senior Services is committed to helping Southfield seniors get and stay active, physically and mentally, through a number of classes, monthly programs and trip opportunities. For more details on senior activities you call us at (248) 796-4650.


Senior Services Activities include:


Day Trips

All senior trips are suspended at this time. The Senior Services offices remain closed to the public at this time.

Senior Services offers many monthly trips, casino trips and other day trips throughout the area. Registration is limited for all day trips and all participants must have proper picture I.D. with them on the trip.

Flyers with further details regarding day trips and other Senior Services events are posted below in pdf format and are available in print at the Senior Services offices in the Parks & Recreation Building. Their offices open Monday through Thursday from 8:30 am-4:00 pm and Friday from 8:30 am-2:00 pm. All trips depart from the Parks & Recreation Building located at 26000 Evergreen Road, unless otherwise noted. A bus may be requested to pick up off-site if there are five or more passengers. Due to the overwhelming demand for off site pick ups we are requesting that anybody who wishes to be picked up must be signed up for the trip two weeks prior to when the trip will be leaving. If you sign up for the trip with less than two weeks until the trip, you must board the bus at the Southfield Parks & Recreation Building. We reserve the right to deny access to any applicants we deem unable to follow the trip guidelines.
