There are tons of activities for everyone and the prices are very reasonable! My kiddo and I come here quite frequently and we love the big water slide. The staff is wonderful and keeps everyone safe and keeps it pleasant for everyone. Thank you!

This place was a blast! Our 2 year old was in heaven. So much fun stuff to play on and the splash pad was perfect! Good indoor activity for a super hot day!

This is a great place to take the kids swimming or rock climbing on cold or rainy days. We also stop in for workouts. Everything is clean and well maintained.

Yes, the Recreation Center does accept Silver Sneakers. If you are just a day guest the staff will sign you in. If you are staying for an extended time, they will get you a recreation center membership pass. Thanks,
