It has a fitness center for members age 50 and up, and a medical clinic open to everyone.The center is named for former longtime Ward 4 Councilman Pete White.“With the opening of this senior center, Oklahoma City is becoming a better and more livable community,” Mayor Cornett said.“There’s no question this MAPS 3 project will help improve the health and wellness of the people over 50 who live in and around the area.LIFE provides solutions that allow older adults to maintain their independence and live their lives to the fullest.Centers for active aging, caregiver education and support, volunteer opportunities and affordable housing are just a few of the programs and services that make life better for thousands of older adults each year.A gently sloping ramp provides easy access to the pool and a curb-less parking lot are examples of design elements with seniors in mind. ADG is the City of Oklahoma City’s consultant for the MAPS 3 program.
Every aspect of the senior center is designed to be easily accessible for older adults. Mc Natt is the construction contractor, and GSB is the architect.
The first MAPS 3 Senior Health & Wellness Center opened last year at 11501 N Rockwell Ave. The City is negotiating with Langston University for the operation of the third center in a to-be-determined location on the northeast side. The debt-free .5 million center has a heated indoor fitness pool, a fully equipped exercise room, a café with computers, a billiards room, an art room with a kiln, a demonstration kitchen and a large outdoor patio.
The hybrid fitness pool has four lanes for swimming laps, plus an area for water aerobics and similar activities.
