Our Local Rec Centers Rock!

We’ve written about many of the different attractions in Southwest Florida, including what to do on a rainy daywhich parks to visit, and popular sporting events to catch. But there are also a handful of public recreation centers that each of our Southwest Florida cities offer with a number of programs you can and should take advantage of as residents. 

What’s In It For You?

As residents of Sanibel Island, our family takes advantage of the Sanibel Rec Center a lot! Our youngest goes to after school care and attends summer camps and other day camps held throughout the year. Our older kids and ourselves use the Rec Center to work out or swim in the pool. Plus, they have a great lap pool, if you’re feeling ambitious!

You’ll find many of our local recreation centers have equally great offerings. The Wa-Ke Hatchee Rec Center (in south Fort Myers), has a large covered open-air basketball court that attracts teenage boys and girls with pretty impressive talent! 

Dust Off Your Cleats

The Bay Oaks Rec Center and multiple other centers have been known to host recreation leagues like adult indoor volleyball, which one of our team members has taken too and enjoyed the competitive play with other local residents. 

Pickleball, kickball, volleyball, basketball - you name it, they have it! And don’t forget about the outdoor sports, baseball, swimming, soccer and more. Each rec center has a slightly different offering, so if you’re looking for something in particular, don’t be afraid to ask if they know where you might find a league!
