With a projected 500,000 visitors in its first year, it has quickly become the center of activity in Maricopa.

The program, called Age-Friendly Maricopa, will provide opportunities for residents 60 years plus to better leverage their talents, time and contributions to all generations, resulting in a stronger Maricopa for everyone.
