Ventura Council for Seniors (VCS)

  1. Parks & Rec Reopening Plans

    As of Thursday, July 2, 2020 at 5:30 pm:

    Summer Programs: we are partnering with local businesses and program providers to offer modified summer programming that meets State of California, County of Ventura, City of Ventura, and CDC guidelines. We will not be offering our traditional full-day camp programs. Instead, we will be focusing on partial day specialty programming such as STEAM, surfing, and dance. We are finalizing our program line-up and will be sharing it soon. Our modified summer programming is scheduled to begin in late July, sooner if feasible.

    In the meantime, we've developed a virtual activities page filled with fun projects, programs, and resources for residents of all ages. We hope you enjoy it!

    Ventura Aquatic Center: modified public lap swim opened Monday, June 29. Information on how to reserve a lane for public lap swim and new pool safety rules is available on the Aquatics Center webpage

    Links & Buenaventura Golf Courses: open as of Friday, April 24 with safe play protocols in place.

    City Parks: open for active and passive use as of Friday, May 29 with CDC guidelines in place.

    City Beaches: closed for the 4th of July weekend; Friday, July 3, Saturday, July 4, and Sunday, July 5.

    City Facility Rentals, Field Reservations & Special Event Permits: canceled through Monday, August 31.

    Albinger Archeological Museum, Barranca Vista Center, Olivas Adobe, Ventura Avenue Adult Center & Westpark Community Center: closed until further notice.

    We hope you have a safe 4th of July weekend! Take care, Your Parks & Recreation Team

What is the Ventura Council for Seniors?

VCS logoThe Ventura Council for Seniors (VCS), formerly the Ventura Council on Aging, formed in 1975, is designated by the Ventura City Council as the representative organization of all seniors (50 and over) in the City of Ventura. The VCS board is comprised of senior volunteers who reside in the city, along with a non-voting City liaison appointed by the Parks, Recreation, and Community Partnerships Department. This group meets quarterly to consider and gather input on local issues important to seniors. The VCS is responsible for making recommendations on these issues to the Ventura City Council. 


You are invited to participate in the Ventura Council for Seniors board meetings during the member/public communications segment of our agenda. Your concerns are our agenda! 

Next Meeting: due to the COVID-19 pandemic, meetings have been postponed until further notice.
