Great Rec Center . . .

If you live in Freeport, you MUST join the Rec Center. If not, you're always welcome to the craft fairs and other activities they offer. Lots of fun!

The rec center has so much to offer. New machines in the gym, pickle ball, the best pool on the south shore of Long Island. The steam and sauna are great. I don't like the locker system, though. You have to pay every time you open the door and I change my outfits frequently. A great place to work out!

The Rec Center is my favorite place in Freeport. It has everything you need to keep you children moving, as well as activities for adults. There is one Olympic size swimming pool, an indoor pool, a kiddie pool and a diving tank. There is also a relatively new playground (free), and a full size gym for adults to workout. The... More

There are many reviews about the athletic areas of this facility, but this review is more about the "front end". The lobby is expansive. There was once a nice tv with comfy chairs for those waiting for others, or just to relax a bit, where one could keep an eye on whatever New York sports game was going on, but... More

Freeport has a gem of a recreation center, with a wonderfully equipped gym, three outdoor pools, an indoor pool, steam rooms, saunas, lockers, showers, ice skating, basketball, pickle ball and lots more, all in very clean and well-maintained center. The staff is great, pleasant and helpful to all guests. Best place for yearly gym membership on south shore.

All-inclusive gym facilities including sauna and steamroom (separate for men and women). Staff is helpful and friendly. Many lockers but seasoners rent them for a year, so usually only the small size is available.
