Trunk or Treat has been moved in to the gym for tonight, October 20th from 6:00 – 8:30 pm due to the weather.

Locker Room Renovation:

Please be advised there will be a delay in the installation of our partitions for the locker rooms, as I received notification from my vendor in reference to the parts for install are on delay.

I can’t express to all our members and guests how unhappy I am to present this information to you.

I ask all of you to please be patient through this process as the outcome when the project is complete will be worth the wait.  Once I receive a confirmed date of opening I will post immediately.

Thank You.

Kim O’Farrell, Director of Parks and Recreation


Thank you for your patience as we continue to keep our recreation center clean and safe for all patrons.
