Lakeview Center for Active Aging

Lakeview Center for Active Aging has had the distinction of being a NC Senior Center of Excellence since 2007.  Overlooking beautiful Lake Tomahawk in the heart of Black Mountain and the Swannanoa Valley, the center is surrounded by  a .55 mile walking path, tennis courts, fishing hot spots, playground, gazebo, picnic pavilion, and an outdoor swimming pool. The Senior Center offers a Nutrition Site that serves hot catered lunches five days a week and a host of programs and activities to meet all activity levels for adults ages 50+. We are also your one stop shop for Information, Assistance, and Referrals for all things aging. For details on all our programs and activities check out our monthly Newsletter, Calendar, and Menu below or call 828 669 8610. 

Both the upstairs and downstairs of Lakeview Center are available for rent and are popular locations for weddings, reunions, and parties.  


Mission Statement: The mission of Lakeview Center is to serve older adults, ages 50 and above, from all backgrounds throughout the Swannanoa Valley.  It is committed to quality creative programming in recreation, health, wellness, and education.  Through outreach it also provides supportive services that enrich the lives of older adults. Recognizing that independence, dignity and self-respect are nurtured through recreation, the Center supports active living for older adults.  The Lakeview Center is proud to be a North Carolina Division of Aging and Adult Services Senior Center of Excellence.
