Moorestown Parks and Recreation Finds New Home in Old Cafeteria

The center's new home was used as the Moorestown High School gym and cafeteria in the mid 1900s.

Moorestown Parks and Recreation Finds New Home in Old Cafeteria
The Moorestown Department of Parks and Recreation has a new home at an old gym.

The Department is taking up residence at the Church Street Recreation Center on the corner of Third and Church Streets. The building was formerly used as a gym and cafeteria for Moorestown High School in the mid-1900’s. It shares the space with the new municipal complex.

For those early risers, there is a the Tuesday morning “Exit 4 Boot Camp.”  While the term “boot camp” inspires images of crawling through barbed wire and mud, this boot camp is open to participants of all ages and all activity levels.  This boot camp inspires participants to commune in fellowship and improve themselves.

For those not beckoned by the rising sun, a mid-day “Adult Open Gym” is available for active adults looking for a pick-up basketball game or just some energizing activity.  Additionally, new programs for adults of all ages are being made available:  yoga in the evenings, pickle ball and badminton.

There are also new programs for youths, including: youth open gym programs, Live Civilly homework help, dance and art classes.

The center is also open for birthday parties and group celebrations.

The third floor provides a spacious party room complete with tables, chairs and a dance floor, as well as pool tables, foos ball tables and ping pong.
