Since its incorporation in 1960, the unprecedented growth of San Dimas has transformed the City from an essentially rural area to a well-balanced community offering industrial, commercial, and residential living. In addition to the 1,700 acre Frank G. Bonelli Recreational Area which lies within the City boundaries, there are many parks such as San Dimas Canyon Park, a city-owned golf course (San Dimas Canyon Golf Club), and over 27 miles of equestrian trails for riding. The city services include an extensive recreational program for youth and for senior citizens, and the City boasts a new modern City Hall, with excellent provisions made for County Sheriff and Fire Departments, along with a fine Los Angeles County Library and Engineering Regional Office.
Since 1993, the San Dimas Senior Citizen/Community Center has been dedicated to providing programs, services, and activities to older adults within the community. Located conveniently within the City of San Dimas Civic Center beneath the picturesque outline of the San Gabriel Mountains, the San Dimas Senior Citizen/Community Center is a facility filled with resources, activities, and fun. Boasting a knowledgeable and dedicated staff, the Senior Center is poised to serve the older adult community now and into the foreseeable future.
