Chelsea Recreation Center
On Monday, September 2, 2019, this recreation center will be closed in observance of the Labor Day holiday.
Beginning on Monday, September 17, 2018, we will start to renovate and modernize the center’s pool and family locker rooms, as well as select restrooms, to enhance your overall facility and pool experience. Lower level bathrooms, family locker rooms and both men’s and women’s locker rooms will be closed beginning September 17, 2018 for approximately 18 months. While we will provide temporary lockers, locker space will be limited. It is important to note that programming schedules will be modified during this time. If you have additional questions, center management and facility staff can be reached at (212) 255-3705. We thank you in advance for your patience.
