Frisbie Senior Center

Our Mission:


Explore together. Learn together. Be together.

Frisbie Senior Center is helping to build a community for Chicago’s Northwest Suburban seniors. With over 65 open programs and a 20,000-square foot, ADA-accessible facility, our mission is to bring seniors together to find new friends and stay active.



Since 1975.

With the support of the City of Des Plaines and Des Plaines Park District, the Frisbie Senior Center was formed as an organization catering to the 55+ age group. Through the efforts of our members, it’s become a one-of-a-kind facility.
