Our Favorite Activities for Lifelong Learners
One of the benefits of retirement is having more time to learn about new interests and practice new hobbies. Not only is it fun and enriching, but multiple studies also show that lifelong learning promotes a higher quality of mental and psychological health. Roland Park Place offers multiple activities and events for residents to explore arts, culture, history and more! Continuing education is a vital part of our holistic approach to wellness.
Our residents have a robust activity and trip calendar that features going to museums, galleries, and live performances. We visit places of interest from DC to NYC. Some of our favorite museums to visit are the Smithsonian, Baltimore Museum of Art, and Maryland Center for History & Culture. Every week we offer a live musical performance in our Arts and Entertainment Center.
Not only do residents visit great masterpieces, but they also create them! Our art studio provides a space for residents to foster their artistic skills. On Saturdays, there is a painting class taught for all skills. For those whose artwork is the written word, there is a writing class for receiving guidance and giving feedback. One of our longest-running workshops is our poetry class where residents read and dive deep into poems from medieval to modern.
Roland Park Place hosts the Iliad lecture program where experts in different topics present on a unified theme for eight weeks. Residents get discounted entry to the series and it is convenient to attend since it is just a few steps from our dining room to the lecture. During the day, there are streamed lectures by university professors through One Day University that can be viewed on the Roland Park Place TV channel.
