Our Past and Future

Take me to the latest Progress Report



It took imagination and hard work to create our Park City Senior Center. In 1976 Union Pacific Railroad donated its abandoned Keetley Depot Station to the Park City Seniors. Located under what is today’s Jordanelle Reservoir, the building took two years and a lot of manual labor and money to move it to the current location at 1361 Woodside Avenue in Park City. Since then, two wings have been added, and the Center has become a warm and lively gathering spot for us Park City elders.



The “Silver Tsunami” has arrived! Over 16% of Park City and Summit County’s population is now age 60 or more; and that percentage is growing as Baby Boomers join our ranks. This is a nation-wide phenomenon.

The Park City Senior Center is also growing to meet the demands of this active, engaged group. Our membership has increased from about 70 seniors a few years ago to over 450 today and we continue to grow.

We are currently in the planning stages with Park City Municipal Corp. to build us a larger, better designed building next door to our current facility in order to accommodate all the programs and activities our membership enjoys. The center will be part of an affordable housing complex which will include some senior housing. Our planning also includes discussions with Summit County about their continuing (and, hopefully, expanding) role supporting our group.

Eventually we would like to be open for lunches five days a week instead of the current two and open daily for a variety of activities.

Woodside II Working Committee Update

October/November 2023
by Francie McNally

Architectural Study Follow up:

On October 4 Jason sent the Committee a new set of drawings based on our Proposed Footprint and Room Dimensions.

 This is the information Jason gave us at the meeting. But everything is subject to review and revision:

  • Corrected the date on the timeline to Issue Request for Proposals (RFP) to January 2024.
  • Jason is already working on the RFP and hopes to advertise it in January 2024.
  • Begin to choose the Selection Committee in February 2024. The committee will include 5-7 key community stakeholders as well as senior representative(s).  Hopefully then in 4-6 weeks they will award the contract. 
  • The City and Developer will enter into a MOU.
  • In April-August 2024 we will be looking for a new temporary location. 
  • With this aggressive timeline, it could be 18-24 months for construction of the new center after all steps have been completed and the project begins.

Jason will go to the Council work session on November 16, 2023, regarding the new senior center plans. We are encouraged to be present at this meeting at 4:45 pm.

The final Council approval will be after the current Council has changed with the newly elected Council members voting on approval of the project. We need to be aware of which city council candidates support the new senior center and senior programs.

He also confirmed that these drawings show 50 residential units. 

The Woodside committee agreed to the following, and after we see the new revisions, we will be prepared to present the
Park City Senior Board of Directors with our final suggestions for their approval:

  • The building’s main level footprint, based on the latest drawings, could be 7,130 sq ft that is Senior only. This square footage footprint is still subject to Jason discussions with the architect.
  • The second level of 7,130 sq ft will be all shared space with the HOA residents and Seniors. This is also subject to final discussion.
  • The top level of 3,500 sq ft will include outdoor space and will be for Seniors’ use only. 
  • The Committee’s agreement is for the footprint only and not the design and layout. We will still be involved in the actual design features of the Center and are not committing to the design that was last presented on October 4, 2023.

Cheryl and Francie will give a PowerPoint presentation to the City Council on October 26, 2023 for our annual MOU review. 

(Update from Oct 11th County budget presentation: The Park City Seniors did not receive any additional County funds in the 2024 budget.)

Next meeting scheduled November 7, 2023.
