    Recreation centers provide the public with an opportunity to enjoy fitness and continued education programs through low cost facilities. In most areas, they are run by local parks departments, and many centers feature both indoor and outdoor activities. These sites are available in many community centers, providing a place where those of all ages and all income brackets, can access health equipment, classes and swimming facilities. The activities that are available will vary by facility. Some of the most well-equipped recreation centers will offer everything from a full gym to pool access for members. In addition to having open times during which the public can use the fitness equipment at their leisure, most also offer classes on swimming, dance, aerobics and other special interest fitness areas catered toward the general public or specifically for youth or senior community members. As these centers are typically sponsored and operated by the parks department or other non profit groups, use of the facilities is offered for free, or at a rate that is much lower than most private gyms. Local government websites are some of the best sources for more information on local play areas and recreation centers. In addition to finding information on membership rates, visitors will also see a schedule of upcoming events. Not only are classes typically available, but parents may find after school programs for their children. They may also find sports leagues that utilize their facilities. Recreation centers are designed to be a place in the community where all are welcome to enjoy physical activities or learn more about their hobbies of choice.
