Categories and Subject Descriptors Senior Club Indonesia is a daily meeting place for seniors who live in a residential complex in the North Jakarta. The club gives a 5-day full lively program as a social responsibility commitment of property management to give a holistic service for the three generations: Senior - Adult - Children. The study was undertaken to find senior members need of safe and fun outdoor playground and how the user requirements could be applied into design as also required by the management to provide the public with a place to relax and refresh in a attractive setting of natural greenery as well as being in a resort or in a park. Observation and interview with members, managements, and caregivers were conducted to capture the real needs and requirements from different viewing angles. From the observation and interview, we found out that most members prefer to dance, walking and light aerobic than heavy body workout. In addition they also preferred interpersonal and social interaction among all members including with the disabled. The combination of educations, sport and leisure of the design hopefully will enhance their physical fitness as well as their healthy mind. Those combinations will promote seniors effort to lead more independent lives and participate fully in society in the future.
