Senior Adults

Many of our residents have found that Vestavia Hills is a wonderful place to call home, both when they were just getting started and now as they sail into their golden years. A variety of classes and lunch/activities programs are available through Vestavia Hills Parks and Recreation – there are several well-established groups offering the opportunity for seniors to connect socially.

The original New Merkel House opened in 1994 as a center for community gatherings and, in recent years, was used primarily as a senior center. Located adjacent to Cahaba Heights Park and Vestavia Hills Elementary Cahaba Heights, the newly constructed New Merkel House offers space for activities and gatherings, as well as outdoor opportunities. The new building is one-story for easy navigation and the size of the meeting space is doubled. Flat, expanded parking, wheelchair accessibility and a cozy fireplace area make this an incredible space for your next event! For more information regarding New Merkel House, contact Melanie Perry at 205.967.5977.
