    History

    The City acquired this 75,000 sq. ft. former General Telephone and Telegraph building and parking lot in 1977 with funding from Community Development Block Grants. Due to the building’s age and its heavy use as a recreational and health services venue, the re have been several repairs to the heating and air conditioning system and roof, the most recent being in 2006 with general fund financed infrastructure improvements. Major renovations were completed in 1998 and 2002, including American’s with Disabilities Act improvements funded by Community Development Block Grants. The facility is chronically short of parking, and studies have been done to find affordable ways of relieving the deficiency. As of 2009, no solution has been found.


    The Department of Parks Recreation and Marine operates the Long Beach Senior Center and five satellite senior centers that offer activities and services tailored to the interests and needs of adults age 50 and over. Additionally, there are other facilities that offer senior activities and classes.
