The new Bridgeton Recreation Center replaced the existing 1980’s building with a new state-of-the-art comprehensive facility. The new 53,000 sq. ft. recreation center enhances the well-being of the entire community by offering diverse family-oriented activities not available at the old community center.

The recreation center is sited northwest of the former location, allowing for the continued use of the original facility during construction. The main lobby, which is accessed through the upper level, overlooks the natatorium and gymnasium below. The new pool offers swim lessons, lifeguard training, aquatic programs, tot times and birthday parties. Aquatic amenities include:

5,000 sq. ft. Leisure Pool

  • Three 25-yard lap lanes
  • Zero beach entry
  • Ramp and stair entries
  • Play structure
  • Vortex
  • Current channel
  • Underwater bench
  • Waterslide, half open and half closed

The facility also features a larger fitness center, an indoor walking track, on-site child care, gymnasium, and meeting rooms.

The project was funded by a voter-approved sales tax used to bond the construction costs.
