A full spectrum recreation complex and community center including Pool/Splash Pad/Water Slides, Walking/Running Track, Clip ‘N’ Climb Climbing Wall, Fitness Center, Gym for Basketball/Volleyball, Community Meeting Rooms, Outdoor Soccer Fields and an Outdoor 6-lane track.

Something big is coming to THE REC in January!

The Future is in Fairview Heights

Join us in watching as we develop the community’s first full spectrum recreational complex and all-in-one destination.  The Rec will be the place for a daytime adventure at the area’s only Clip ‘N’ Climb Climbing Wall, a home for all of your fitness needs, and a location for your next party, wedding or corporate event. You’ll be able to enjoy outdoor time on the soccer field or get in some cardio on the 6-lane track before taking a dip in the pool, a slide down the waterslide, or a splash into the lazy river. It’s easy to see that The REC will have everything you need to entertain your family, find yourself, find friends, and focus on the moments in life that matter the most.

The Story Behind The REC

AQUATICS

 

Swimming just got real at The REC. This massive facility will have a 4-lane zero entry pool with certified lifeguards, exercise classes, swimming lessons, and more!

Your average day at the pool just got a lot more exciting. When the new REC opens, you will be able to enjoy a few twists and turns on the waterslide, create some fun on the splash pad, and dominate a game of water volleyball or basketball before a relaxing float in the lazy river.

FITNESS

 

Congratulations! You’ve finally found your all-in-one functional fitness destination. Our group fitness classes will provide options to everyone from the slow mover to the trained athlete. From Yoga to Boot Camp, we’ll keep you on your toes every moment that you spend at The REC.

If you are more of a lone wolf when it comes to your fitness routine, you’ll definitely find your happy place working out in our state-of-the-art weight room or on the various treadmills, ellipticals and other cardio and training equipment that you’ll find at The REC.

OUTDOOR

 

Welcome to your outdoor home away from home. Take a walk on the walking path and enjoy watching (or joining) all of the fun that happens inside of our custom dog park! Have some fun playing soccer on the full-sized soccer field or test out your 50-yard-dash skills on the six-lane running track.

Whether you are a walker, a runner, or a watcher, there’s something for everyone outside of The REC.

CLIP ‘N’ CLIMB

 

Rock Climbing, meet The REC. With a range of levels and an opportunity for healthy fun at any age or strength, Clip ‘N’ Climb will take your love for fitness to new heights! So strap on a harness, take a deep breath, and get ready for an experience that can only be found at The REC!

BASKETBALL & VOLLEYBALL COURTS

 

When it comes to courts, there’s no match for The REC. Whether you are just learning to dribble or a pro with the ball, you’ll love spending time on our full-sized basketball court.

Don’t worry, if you prefer to spike the ball instead of dunk it, the court is easily converted in to two volleyball courts! Maybe you’d rather have something to swing at? We’ve got you covered by converting the courts in to two additional pickleball courts!

COMMUNITY ROOMS / PARTIES

 

With space for up to 100 guests, the party and meeting rooms at The REC are ready to host everything from weddings to bar mitzvah’s, birthday parties to retirement parties and everything in between! Let us show you how to party at The REC!

What People Are Saying About The REC

I feel really good for our youth in our community because this is such a central focal point for families and youth to go out and recreate and have activities and create family memories.

There will be a lot of aspects that everyone will enjoy in the pool area.

We are building a building, but we’re really building a complex.

People should see that the city is investing in itself.

The Mayor wanted something iconic; something different; something that’s not like the other ones around town.

I used to have to take my kids to St. Louis for everything. Now I’ll have a place close by to take my grandkids.
