Your Massillon Recreation Center
The Massillon Recreation Center located at 505 Erie Street North was made a reality with the passage of a 3/10 of 1% income tax levy that was passed in 1995 to assist with the expansion of the Parks and Recreation system. The Recreation Center is approximately 69,000 square feet and is situated in the heart of downtown Massillon. Land acquisition and construction of the facility was $10.4 million. van Dijk Westlake Reed Leskosky served as the architect and Bogner Construction served as construction manager for the project.
