Home About Us



The South Park Recreation Center collects donations from people who want to make a difference. We invite you to be a part of the excitement!

Board & Staff

The rec center is staffed by one full-time Manager who oversees the part-time staff: fitness instructors, lifeguards and front desk staff. Our Board of Directors is responsible for the overall operation of the rec center.


In 1993, a recreation center committee was organized by a group of citizens who shared the belief that South Park was in need of a facility for indoor recreation and various community programs. We opened on February 15, 2005.



Mission Statement

"The South Park, Parks and Recreation District aims to enrich the lives of as many members as possible, in our community, by providing the biggest diversification of recreational and social opportunities that our resources and imagination will allow. We may be small, but we aim to grow in quantity and quality."
