List of Recreation Centers and Special Fitness Centers

*Note: All information listed is subject to change. Please contact the facility of interest for updated information.

Jessica Pinckard, a 2nd year graduate student at the University of Texas School of Public Health took on a project to develop a directory of recreation centers in Dallas and surrounding cities that provide facilities, personnel, and /or equipment and programs that would be accessible for REACH’s consumers. Unfortunately, the results were rather disappointing with only a handful of centers available that cater to the needs of people with disabilities. 

Update 10/19/2018 many of the centers have now been renovated or updated to better accomodate with with disabilities. 

CITY OF DALLAS:
All recreation centers require a membership card--$10/annum
All recreation centers meet ADA standards.
