Recreation Centers

Since 1910, the City of New York/Parks & Recreation has provided the most affordable and extensive network of recreational services throughout New York City. Our Recreation Facilities (Recreation Centers, CBOs, and satellites) offer services such as indoor pools, weight rooms, basketball courts, dance studios, boxing rings, art studios, game rooms and libraries.

All of our Recreation Centers offer a wide range of programs for all ages, such as aerobics, dancing, computer classes and art. Most of our programs are free or available at a modest cost, and all are open to the general public. Each center is equipped with a professional staff who provide organized and free-play activities that are safe, fun, and educational.
