Expanded Hours at DPR Recreation Centers

DPR is dramatically expanding its hours at 45 recreation centers, adding 39 extra hours of recreation per week at most sites. The expansion of hours addresses a growing desire among teens more interested in leisure usage of DPR’s gyms, fitness centers, eGaming lounges, etc. DPR will limit programming and permits during the expanded hours to ensure availability of these highly utilized recreation assets for teens.
