Located in Calgary's NW community of Parkdale, the Super Member Activity Centre, Parkdale Nifty Fifties Seniors Association was established in 1983.  Nifty 50s provides a place where Calgary seniors 50+ can come together to enjoy social events, workshops, art classes, bridge and other activities that match their unique needs and social interests. We recognize that seniors strengthen the community and offer a place to enhance their physical, social and emotional well-being. We encourage all of our members and Super Members to visit Parkdale Nifty 50s and engage through their various events and activities and for what they are well known for: their artist workshops.

NOTE: When functions are listed as FREE, it is customary to provide a donation.
