...your hard work is worth it. You are helping seniors to enjoy their 'retirement' years while learning and growing.  I speak for so many friends that write, paint, exercise and attend the talks at our wonderful WCSA. We are not just living but thriving.  What fun you provide. 
-Quote from a Center participant.

The Westport Center for Senior Activities (WCSA) originated in the Bedford Room of the Westport/Weston YMCA in its downtown location back in 1973. The WCSA operated primarily as a drop-in center. In 1985, the WCSA outgrew its space and moved to the vacant Greens Farms School.  When the Greens Farms School was reclaimed in 1998 for school purposes, the WCSA moved to a temporary location in Staples High School.

In 2004, the town’s efforts to establish a permanent facility became a reality.  The current building was built on the Baron’s South property, 21 Imperial Avenue. In 2018 enhancements and expansion of the Center included upgrades, additional program and meeting space, a state of the art fitness room, additional parking spaces and many amenities.  

Today, the Center is a well-respected facility and is looked upon by other communities and professionals as the model for a successful and thriving senior center.The WCSA is a hub of activity with over 2,500 participants 60+ years of age.
