San Diego Oasis…coming to Rancho Bernardo in 2023!

At San Diego Oasis, we want each and every member to live life as vibrantly as possible
…mentally
…physically
…socially
…creatively
…knowledgeably
…safely
…and enjoyably!

We believe this is what sets us apart.

Our newest location* in Rancho Bernardo will be an intellectual, fitness, creative, and social hub that brings each of these elements together in a beautiful, safe, and convenient location:

  • Demonstration Kitchen for hands-on experiences in the best of cooking creations.
  • Oasis Innovation Center (OIC) for one-on-one Ask the Expert sessions and “try before you buy” demonstrations as well as up-to-date presentations on current technological advances.
  • 200-Person Lecture Hall for large presentations with renowned speakers and events classrooms for peer-to-peer learning and exchanges through a myriad of compelling and relevant topics.
  • Art Studio for inspirational arts and crafts work – like the ex-Disney© executive who created the beast in Beauty and the Beast who teaches animation, or the watercolor expert who inspires seniors of all levels to paint what they see.
  • Resource Center where seniors can get useful information about benefits, Veterans issues, finance, healthcare, and other services.
  • Coffee Cart to encourage socialization, friendship and engagement.
  • Health and Wellness Center for exercise and dance, as well as health-related classes and activities where people can feel the music and enjoy movement and inspiration with their peers.
  • Accessibility through easy access from the I5 freeway.
  • Ample Parking that is safe and well-lit.
  • Garden Area for zen meditation, outdoor dining and friendly relaxation.

*Features subject to change. Opening timeline is targeted for early 2023.

Together, we are creating an unprecedented place for older adults to thrive. San Diego Oasis and its partners are creating an intellectual, fitness, creative, technology-focused, and socially-fun hub in Rancho Bernardo. Oasis new headquarters will feature an indoor event space for 200 which includes a beautiful outdoor patio, numerous meeting rooms and classrooms, a demonstration kitchen, technology and innovation center, and more. When not used for primary older-adult-focused activities, this 17,800 sq ft building will be available for the community to rent. If your organization is interested in a partnership, please email .
