Activity Center

The Orland Township Activity Center is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for residents to play cards and bingo and enjoy refreshments. We provide coffee and doughnuts in the morning and, on occasion, sandwiches, hot dogs, or pizzas later in the day.


The Orland Park Library visits the Activity Center during regular senior drop-in hours the first and third Mondays and Wednesdays of the month. Residents are able to check out books and DVDs and sign up for a library card if they need one.


Therapy dogs occasionally visit the Activity Center to spend time with seniors. The dogs are trained to provide comfort and affection to those in need. All participating dogs are current on vaccinations and physicals, and are certified members of Therapy Dogs International, which requires a strict certification process.


Orland Township hosts multiple luncheons throughout the year for senior residents. Luncheons consist of a delicious catered meal and live entertainment, ranging from singers and musicians to comedians and magicians.

Tickets are sold on a first-come, first-serve basis and may be purchased at the Township office.

Dinner Dances

Orland Township offers various dinner dances throughout the year, providing seniors with an evening of fine food and entertainment. Dinner dances are often held at the Orland Chateau and include a plated meal and live entertainment.

Dinner dances are open to both residents and non-residents. Tickets can be purchased at the Township office.
