About Us


Coastal Seniors of South Walton began in December 2015 during a meeting with Walton County Commissioners, to discuss the need for a program to provide activities for the growing number of seniors in our community. There has been a large population growth in South Walton, and yet services for seniors have not kept pace with growth trends.

Our group was formed, and a future plan was established to develop a South Walton Senior Activity Center. Since the inception of the group, a steering committee has been formed, officers elected, activities planned, and various meetings and events have been held.

In September 2017, Coastal Seniors of South Walton became a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.

To develop and maintain dynamic programs to encourage older adults to remain active, use their skills, develop their potential, and continue involvement in the community.
