Avon Recreation Center’s 21st Anniversary Celebration
“This is a special day for us. We want to recognize the years of patronage from the community with special pricing and free admission,” said Recreation Director, John Curutchet. “We welcome the public to try some of our fitness classes and be reintroduced to an updated and enhanced facility. Guests will have the opportunity to sample any of the group fitness or yoga classes offered that day which include HIIT Spin group cycling, Yoga for Stiff People, Fertility Yoga, and Zumba.”
This year brought many improvements to the Center, including the purchase of new free weights and updated fitness equipment upstairs, additional aquatics play features like tumble buckets and a spray water cannon, and minor renovations to the lobby. In addition, the Recreation Center launched a Community Swim Program with offerings to meet all swim levels, ranging from Learn to Swim classes to a USA Swimming Competitive Travel Team. A goal of the program is to provide equal opportunity to all swimmers, and financial aid has increased swim program participation for all levels of our socioeconomic demographic.
In 1995, when the Avon Recreation Center first opened its doors, the facility was the first recreation center in the valley. It was the only place with a public pool and indoor slide. Today the Avon Recreation Center offers a resistance training and free weight room, expansive cardio training area, group cycling/spin room, a private yoga studio and more than 40 group fitness, aquatics, and wellness classes per week.
