Welcome back!  We have missed you!  We are excited to invite you back into the Whitney Recreation Center.  However, things are going to be a little bit different.  In order to help control and maintain 6ft distancing, the Recreation Center is able to open to only 25% capacity, so we are encouraging our users to call and make a reservation ahead of time for the Fitness Room, Walking Track, Pickleball Courts and Open Gym.  Users can drop in but we cannot guarantee we will have a space available. If we are at full capacity, we will need the users to wait in their car until there is an opening or make a reservation to come back at a later time.  Please read below the current guidelines of the Whitney Recreation Center.  We look forward to seeing you!
