Related Image COMMUNITY SAFETY PLAN FOR COVID-19In response to the State & City's Coronavirus mitigation plan, the Provo Recreation Center is closed to the public until further notice. Our front desk will be open to answer question, Monday-Friday, 9AM-5PM.

Future communication from managers will disperse once plans of action have been built. Updates concerning the functioning of the facility and how we plan to move forward are fluid and transitioning as we continue to learn more information. We are doing our best to come up with a fair and reasonable solution for our patrons as quick as possible. Thank you for your understanding and business. 

All Senior Center activities and services will be suspended also. Staff will be available to schedule Senior Lunch deliveries to homes.

All Provo Parks and Recreation Department Youth/Adult Sports programs and Community Classes will also be suspended. Program coordinators will be in direct contact with patrons regarding specific questions on refunds, rescheduling, and postponing. We appreciate your patience.
