Q: What is the difference between a Recreation Center and a Community Center?

Community Center – Customarily a public building used for diverse community programming, such as public meetings, banquet rooms, hosting of conference and/or training activities, classroom space, private events and gatherings, fitness activities, and administration support.  A Community Center is often designed to meet specific needs informed by community input.  To maximize benefit to the public, the design of a Community Center intentionally focuses on serving a broad cross section of patrons across a wide age ranges.  Because peak activities for different age groups often occur on different schedules, programming is key to maximizing value for all citizens.  Because such a wide cross-section of patrons use Community Centers, it is common to see corporate sponsors and/or private businesses choose to affiliate with such facilities. 

Recreation Center – Sometimes a public or private facility that is primarily intended to host sports leagues, athletic competition, fitness programs, and related training activities. Recreation Centers vary in size and focus, many times offering a mix of indoor and outdoor recreation, as well as targeted activities such as aquatic facilities.  A Recreation Center’s amenities are often informed by marketplace demand for some or all of the following needs: indoor/outdoor court facilities, indoor/outdoor field sports facilities, indoor/outdoor aquatics, locker rooms, weight rooms, café space, and opportunities for public/private partnerships.  In instances where a public/private partnership is forged, both parties must carefully understand how capital costs and revenue are shared, as well as whether the public or private entity controls schedule, gate/admittance, field/court access, parking, and ongoing maintenance.
