The Strongsville Recreation center is the place to go whether you're looking for a great workout, a place to swim, or enjoy a competitive game of basketball, air hockey, ping pong or shoot some pool.

Becoming a member is easy and if you plan to visit the center more than just a couple times a year, it will save you money. Members can access the facility as many times as they want with no extra fee. In fact, there are even some days where only members can come, and non-members are excluded from buying a temporary pass.

Yearly costs vary depending on the membership category that you choose.  Membership is valid for one year from the date of application and is not refundable or transferable.  Groups of 20 or more can visit the Center at a discounted rate.  Arrangements can be made by calling 440-580-3270. 

Basement -- Lower Level

Aquatic Center
The aquatic center is home to the very popular Pirate Ship kiddie pool with zero-depth entry. The ship takes up the entirety of the first section of the activity pool. It features many different slides, tunnels, and different water spouts to keep everyone wet and having fun.  The second part of the activity pool boasts a giant water which you must be 48" to ride. The third section of the activity pool is a 5 lane lap pool with water basketball hoops. Friends can play some competitive water basketball, or just enjoy shooting from different areas of the pool.

The competition pool is 8 lanes, 25 yard laps and 3 diving boards, including a high dive.
It's the biggest and deepest pool in the aquatic center. Our city's swim team makes great use of the center's pools. One bit of advice, if you plan to visit during swim season, check to make sure the competition pool isn't closed due to team practices or meets.  In addition to the pools, the aquatic center also features a 24 person whirlpool, a steam and sauna room and bleacher seating for approximately 500.  For more information, contact Aquatic Supervisor Robin Meczkaat (440) 580-3260.
