City of Cleveland Extends Summer Hours at 8 Rec Centers

The City of Cleveland Division of Recreation will extend hours at eight recreation centers for the summer. Wednesday through Saturday from now through August 12, 2017, these rec centers will remain open until 11 p.m.

Made possible in part by the generosity of the Cleveland Foundation, the extended hours are aimed at keeping youth engaged in positive activities during the late evening hours at recreation centers as an alternative to being on the street.¬†We are excited to announce new programming for youth and young adults which includes yoga, ballet and chess. Updated programs and activities are the result of Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative and the Office of Prevention, Intervention and Opportunity for Youth and Young Adults.

Participating recreation centers include:

  • Lonnie Burten, 2511 East 46th St.
  • Cudell, 1910 West Blvd.
  • Glenville, 680 E. 113th
  • Zelma George, 3155 Martin L. King Blvd.
  • Michael Zone, 6301 Lorain Ave.
  • Earle B. Turner, 11300 Miles Ave.
  • Fairfax, 2335 E. 82nd
  • Thurgood Marshall, 8611 Hough Ave.

Normal business hours for recreation centers are 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Fridays and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Each recreation center will offer youth basketball leagues as well as game room activities and swimming programs. Off-duty police officers will be present at each facility.
