The Activity Center is now open to the public by appointment only. COVID safety protocols are in place.  

The Activity Center gym, pool, and other recreation rooms will reopen on the same modified schedule as was used in late 2020.  Patrons will be admitted at 25% capacity within each area of the facility. 

Reservations are required for ALL activity center visitors and will be made in one-hour time slots. You may reserve each area one time per day and you may reserve multiple areas on the same day. For example, a visitor could make the following reservations: 7 to 8 a.m.: Cardio Room 1; 8 to 9 a.m.: Gymnasium for open play basketball; 9 to 10 a.m.: Weight Room.  If you are unable to make your scheduled time, please cancel your reservation so that others may have access to that time slot.

The status of all City events/openings is subject to change at any time. For more information visit the Parks and Recreation COVID-19 Info Page.
