Went for a swimming meet for our grandkids. Lots of people & kids participating. Very well organized with boards with swimmers names. Nice area to go to if your person is not swimming. Could use more chairs & tables to sit at. Recreation center has ice also for skating! Parking was tight. Busy place!!

What a facility. If you like ice hockey or swimming. It's actually a warm rink and the concessions are excellent for a sports facility.

Heat broke down in the pool area...swimmers were cold. They could have a least brought in large heaters to keep the swimmers a bit warmer.

The recreation center has an olympic-size swim pool, large gymnasium and ice rink. Nothing fancy to boast about, but serves its purpose for swim meets.
