Allen Senior Recreation Center
Weekend Operation Hours Change
Through a comprehensive evaluation of operations at the Allen Senior Recreation Center, findings have revealed that utilization by members is extremely low on Saturdays. To ensure that operations are appropriately staffed in a fiscally responsible manner, it is necessary to reduce hours at the Allen Senior Recreation Center. The last day of Saturday operation will be August 16. Elimination of Saturday operation hours will not negatively impact special events which are scheduled and offered by the Allen Senior Recreation Center nor are there any changes to weekday hours. Please feel free to contact Allen Senior Recreation Center staff with any questions.
