The park surrounding the community center, including tennis courts, beach volleyball courts, baseball diamonds, swimming / lap pool with dive platforms and waterslide, kids playground, picnic areas with briquette barbeque stands, statues, and greenery is all very well maintained. This is a beautiful space to spend a day with family. A hidden gem!

This review is actually for the park next to the community centre. It features ponds, turtles, birds, art work, playground, walking trails, bbq pavilions, holocaust memorial and sports facilities.

The fitness room is a bit small and can get crowded, but the $5 fee is worth it. Scales, showers, friendly staff - quite nice for the price.

Typical, city rec facility. Nice location in a beautiful park. Undersized and grossly inadequate. Staff is typical rec staff and apparently has poor leadership. A better choice may be the Young Mens Christian Association next door but also has staffing and leadership issues. Better yet, play in the park and exercise at 24Hour Fitness.

For a $5 drop-in fee, it's a perfectly good gym with all the equipment you need to feel LESS guilty about all the great dinners in the desert...this place saved me! Air conditioned with lots of cool locals, super easy to get to and ample parking.
