Program Description

  Recreation Community & Neighborhood Centers

The Department of Recreation has 23 recreation centers throughout the County. These facilities provide affordable programs featuring leisure activities, social interaction, family participation, and community civic involvement, as well as promote community cohesion and identity for all ages.

Our centers are designed to support sports, fitness, dance, community/social activities, and art programs. Activities include instructional programs, organized competitions, performances and exhibitions, recreational clubs and hobby groups, and accessibility initiatives for special populations. Center spaces are available for community activities, party rentals, receptions, and civic group meetings. Designated sites offer afterschool programs for children and youth, such as Club Adventure and Club Friday, at affordable pricing. The centers are a place where individuals, families communities and government are connected, as well as a thriving hub of activities.
