The South Knoxville Senior Center opened in Fall 2007 at 6729 Martel Lane, just off John Sevier Highway. Our facility offers recreational and program activity for residents aged 50+, Monday – Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
We are the only Knox County senior center to offer an indoor swimming pool available for recreational swimming and also scheduled for water aerobics and arthritis water exercise programs. The pool temperature is kept constant to maximize the therapeutic benefits of water activities.
Music and dancing are highlighted with weekly Bluegrass Jam, Ballroom Dancing, Clogging and Joy Makers music group opportunities. Join us for arts and crafts sessions in needlecrafts, sewing, and painting. If you prefer to join a group of card players, we have groups who enjoy pinochle, canasta, rook, bridge, and Bunco. You are also welcome to enjoy our classroom where you can browse our library or challenge yourself with puzzles and games. Our computer room is open for individual use as well as instructional classes.
Other programs and special events are scheduled every month. Check our calendar of activities to find out what fits your schedule and interests! Come take a tour and see what you’ve been missing! Please feel free to call us a 573-5843.
