News & Announcements
The New Year is here and, for many of us, that means it is time for resolutions. How can we improve upon ourselves in 2023? The most common resolutions are to spend time with family and get in better shape. If that is your resolution, you will be happy to know we can help you out! You and the family can join our state-of-the-art Recreation Center on Koelle Boulevard. We have a large pool, fitness room, full court basketball, walking/running track and fitness rooms where classes are run by caring and motivated instructors. There is always something to do for a price you cannot beat. You can join by the month or year. We have plans that will work for everyone. If you have not seen the facility, come by and check it out. We know you will be impressed.
If you prefer to enjoy the outdoors, even in the cold months, you will be glad to know that according to WalkScore, Secaucus has a walkability score of 83 out of 100. That means it is easier for residents to access parks, community facilities and other locations by foot. We have many miles of great walking paths and loads of parks. However, we do recognize, while this is great for most residents, getting around town may not be as easy for some of our seniors. That is why we have always maintained a robust transportation system for our seniors and continuously look for ways to make it better. A couple of weeks ago we leased a brand new 24 passenger, handicapped equipped, bus that will be used for transportation of our seniors. The full amount of the lease on this bus is being paid for by a CDBG grant we received from Hudson County. We hope this added convenience is just one way that makes Secaucus a great place for seniors. I would like to remind residents that while the new Senior Center is being built, all the programs that seniors love are still being offered through our Department of Senior Services located at 145 Front Street.
