City of Broken Arrow officials and Broken Arrow Seniors Inc. are celebrating the opening of the new Senior Center Annex, located at 1811 S. Main St., with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, Oct. 4, at 11 a.m.

This two-part municipal project consists of a new one-story building, parking, and stormwater improvements. The 12,400-square-foot facility includes:

  • Two large multipurpose activity rooms
  • A theatre
    room
  • An exercise
    room
  • A catering kitchen
  • Other smaller activity rooms and offices

The 201-space parking lot provides a dual-purpose amenity by tying into the trail at the Arrowhead Park Softball Complex to the east and serves as overflow
parking for the park as needed on evenings and weekends. The project also included storm sewer improvements around Arrowhead Park.



“This is a very exciting day for Broken Arrow’s seniors and our entire community,” City Manager Michael Spurgeon said. “The
City
prides itself on striving to care for those who have come before us by ensuring our seniors have great facilities, amenities, and programs they can enjoy daily. The new annex demonstrates our commitment to this endeavor.”

The Senior Center’s mission is to be the model in the region for promoting healthy, social, emotional, and physical engagements for adults 55 and older
through programmed activities and social opportunities.

“It is an honor to live and work in a city that values our seniors,” Kimberly Crenshaw, Broken Arrow Seniors Interim Executive Director said. “This facility is a testament to that dedication.”  

Broken Arrow Seniors is a non-profit organization serving over 2,000 members in the Broken Arrow area. This activity center offers more than 75 activities, educational opportunities, health screenings, and a nutrition program. Visit www.baseniors.org for more information.

Bravo Builders, LLC, of Coweta, constructed the new facility and improvements at approximately $3.8 million, paid for by the voter-approved 2018 General Obligation bond.
