Dumont Senior Center
39 Dumont Avenue
Dumont, NJ 07628
The Senior Center generally opens Monday through Friday at 8am. We close some evenings at 5pm, and stay open for evening activities longer on the other days. If the Center is being used, we remain open.
All week long, you can borrow a book or video from our library, work on a puzzle, read a book or magazine, sit in on any number of conversations, and play cards, dice, or board games.
During very hot spells, the Center remains open late and on the weekends. During blackouts where heat or air conditioning is necessary, the Center will be open. If a blackout or extreme weather conditions occur after our normal bus transportation hours, you can call the Dumont Police Department at 201-387-5000 for transportation and they will bring you to the Center.
