About The REC – The Rec

About The REC

Join us at the community’s first full spectrum recreational complex and all-in-one destination.  The Rec is 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 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 has everything you need to entertain your family, find yourself, find friends, and focus on the moments in life that matter the most.

Outdoor Features

Dog Park

The REC Complex has a great play area for you and your 4 legged friend.  The Dog Park has a small, and large dog play area so they can play with dogs compatible with their size.  All dogs must have up to date vaccinations, be non-aggressive, and be over 4 months old.  Owners are responsible for picking up after their pet and must follow all of the Dog Park rules and policies.

Outdoor Fitness Track

The REC Complex offers a 6 lane, 400 Meter asphalt track as well as a roughly ½ mile fitness trail the public can use for their physical fitness needs.  If you need to train for an upcoming race, or if you just enjoy walking the track this would be an excellent area for you to use.

Soccer Field

The Soccer Field at the REC Complex can be used by the public to play a variety of recreational sports.  Open recreational play is held on a first come first serve basis, unless the field has been reserved for previously scheduled programs from Fairview Heights Parks & Recreation.
