Joyce Raye Patterson 50+ Activity Center

Other Link JRP Senior Center

The Joyce Raye Patterson 50+ Activity Center is a nice, attractive facility for persons 50+ or handicapped. Built over the existing Library Square parking lot, parking and access are convenient for our users. We have approximately 55 groups and organizations that meet either daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly. 


This pleasant atmosphere is unsurpassed in this area. In 19,000 square feet of space, a variety of activities take place. You do not have to be a resident of St. Joseph to enjoy our center. Some groups have their own membership requirements and/or fees. Our center does not have an overall membership fee. Our budget is funded through the City’s Parks, Recreation and Civic Facilities tax. Come see us sometime!
