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

While many of our facilities are still being used for emergency response and seasonal training, some of our recreation centers are open to the public on a limited basis as of June 14, 2021. At this time, our recreation centers are only open to patrons with an active membership as of March 2020. We are not registering new members at this time.

Reservations

With safety precautions in mind, in order to limit the number of people, you must have an advance reservation to use a recreation center.

For the safety of our employees and patrons, some amenities or programs may have been changed or removed. Please check your individual center for information.

At this time, indoor pools are not open to the public. 

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. You will be required to wear a mask unless you are medically unable to do so.
