Spring is just around the corner! With winter over, it’s time to get out for a little sunny relaxation in lovely Gladstone, MO. As any Kansas City native knows, we greet spring happily after cold winter days. At The Grand Royale, we offer many ways to enjoy this time of year, and every season, both at our community and in the Greater Kansas City metro. Read on to learn more about spring activities for seniors.
Outdoor Activities for Older Adults
There are many outdoor activities for seniors from walking and biking to visiting local parks or farmers markets. Gardening is a great activity for seniors who like to spend time in warm weather and get a little fresh air.
In Gladstone, the city offers a wonderful senior program called 50+. Joining the program gives you access to classes, bingo, volunteer opportunities, day trips, the Gladstone Senior Meeting, and more. The Gladstone Community Center hosts weekly bridge and hand & foot events. The Gladstone Senior Group welcomes any interested party to attend their monthly meetings.
Some additional ways seniors can explore the great outdoors in Kansas City include:
KC Royals games, where fans 65 and better get half-price tickets at the box office.
The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, which hosts festivals, concerts and exhibits.
Powell Gardens, world-renowned botanical garden featuring the edible Heartland Harvest Garden.
Family Tree Nursery’s three metro locations make stress-relieving nature walks a breeze.
The Country Club Plaza, a day trip destination that offers great food, amazing culture, and fun outdoor activities.
Penguin Park, a great spot to bring the grandkids.
We’ve got lots to offer the active seniors on campus at The Grand Royale, too.
