Recreation Centers

Swimmers doing laps in a pool

Since 1910, the Department of Parks & Recreation has provided the most affordable and extensive network of recreational services throughout New York City. Our recreation centers offer facilities such as indoor pools, weight rooms, basketball courts, and dance studios, art studios, game rooms, and libraries. All of our recreation centers offer a range of programs for people of all ages.

NYC Recreation Center Reopening

Sign up in-person before December 31st, 2021 and receive a FREE one-year membership. Valid ID and proof of vaccination required.

Starting Monday, September 13, 2021, recreation centers across the five boroughs will reopen to all New Yorkers — members and non-members — for free. Free memberships are available to New Yorkers who sign up between September 7 - December 31, 2021. The membership term will last for one year from the date the individual signs up, and will grant access to citywide facilities. Visit your local recreation center to sign up for a membership!

Health and Safety

In order to keep our members and employees safe and healthy, we ask that you help us prevent the spread of COVID-19. When using a recreation center, please make sure that you:

  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Maintain six feet of physical distance
  • Wear an acceptable face covering
  • Wash your hands often

You will be asked to complete a health screening and your temperature will be taken before you enter the facility. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required, for those who are eligible, to enter recreation centers, and mask-wearing is required for all. In addition, equipment has been arranged to promote social distancing, and shared equipment will be cleaned frequently.
