City Recreation Center

Effective immediately, due to the recent COVID-19 virus, The City Recreation Center and Crete Civic Center are closed until further notice.  We will keep everyone posted on Facebook, website, and via E-mail going forward.

About the Center

The City Recreation Center is operated by the City of Plattsburgh Recreation Department. It sits on U.S. Oval on the historic "Old Base." The Center occupies the former military recreation facility, which was built in 1934. To learn about the amenities of this center, please view the Facility page.

A Healthy Community is a Happy Community

The City Recreation Center is the perfect place to get into a fitness routine. As the most extensive multi-use recreation facility in the North Country, you can have fun with friends in a "no frills" environment. Joining is affordable, and there are several membership options.

Renovations & a Return to Public Space

The last several years have seen many changes at the City Recreation Center. We will have added almost 20,000 square feet for public use, improved the Men's locker room, and added equipment. If you haven't been here in a while, it will be worth the visit!
