Thanks so much for sharing your great comments! The Recreation Center also has a climbing wall that is open 12pm-4pm that is included in the entrance fee if that is of interest. Again, thank you for sharing your nice comments.

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!

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,
