Serving as the hub of our community, The Point & Pavilion in our Central Park is the focal point of activity, fitness, learning, art, music and much more at CC Young. Its architecture as well as its mix of meeting and event spaces make it a truly special place for enhancing the quality of life of our residents and our neighborhood communities. The Point & Pavilion acts as a connection between CC Young and the surrounding communities, continuing the commitment we have to serving not only our residents and their families, but everyone.
Throughout its spectacular 20,000 sq. ft. environment there are year-round programs; senior tech classes; art gallery events; the Dr. Kenneth Cooper Fitness Center; classes for learning and spirituality; entertainment; wellness and fitness resources, and more. Home to civic groups, fraternal organizations and more, The Point & Pavilion’s commitment to community outreach speaks to our mission of serving all of those around us. Also onsite is The Café, where you can grab a quick meal or snack. The Point is open to residents and the general public age 55 and forward. Come visit us and discover The Point & Pavilion for yourself!
Thank you to the many artists and writers who shared their talent and works at the 21st Annual Spirit Is Ageless Art & Writing Contest Awards Program. This event was specifically designed to appreciate the gifts of all participants who are age 55 and better. This year’s entries were amazing and once again raised the bar as did the awards program held on Friday, June 25, 2021.
This year’s awards program, hosted by Jennifer Griffin, VP-Engagement and Brian Parman, Director of The Point & Pavilion, celebrated each of the artists and the color, nostalgia and art found on historic Route 66.
