Your Family Recreation Center


The Trails Recreation Center will be taking a phased approach to opening the recreation facility and offering programs and services that adhere to state recommendations. Our number one goal continues to be the safety of the community and staff.  We feel the steps we have taken by reducing facility/program capacities, enforcing physical distancing guidelines, enhancing cleaning and disinfecting efforts, using personal protective equipment, etc. will help us to maintain this goal.

        Monday – Friday    6a – 8p (Fitness floors/lap pool will close at 7:30 pm per reservation schedule)
        Saturday               7a – 5p (Fitness floors/lap pool will close at 5:30 pm per reservation schedule)
        Sunday                 9a – 3p (Fitness floors/lap pool will close at 2:30 pm per reservation schedule)
