Rec Sports is enhanced by its award-winning indoor and outdoor facilities, including six indoor locations—the Recreation and Physical Activity Center (RPAC), Jesse Owens Recreational Centers (JORC), Adventure Recreation Center (ARC) and the North Recreation Center —and more than 90 acres of outdoor parks, courts and fields.

You can take advantage of free group fitness classes, fitness equipment, lounge and study spaces, courts and equipment for many sports, family hours, children’s programming, and many more options.
