About our Seniors Program:
Our Senior program is one of our more popular programs.
Whether you like live theater performances, whale watch or sunset cruises, trips to Botanical Gardens, or shopping, you will find all of those and many more exciting adventures through the Windham Parks and Recreation Department. A quarterly senior newsletter is available highlighting everything we are offering, and if you’d like to have this mailed to you, please call the office to get added to the mailing list. Due to the popularity of these programs, payment is required at the time of registration in order to secure a spot on the trip. For anyone who has participated in any of our senior programs in the recent past, an online account has been made in your name. To access your account, please use your email address for your username and the word "windham"(all smalls) as your password. You can register for all your senior programs at the bottom of this page. Any new participants, or participants that don't have computer access, you can always make out a paper registration form and either send it in the mail or drop it off at the Windham Parks & Rec Office. The process can be quite simple. You can always pay with a credit card over the phone or send in a check indicating your trip choices. Our office is also open Monday—Friday from 8:00 a.m.—4:00 p.m. if you prefer to pay in person. Please feel free to stop in anytime, or call the office at 892-1905 if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions.
