On Monday, the Elgin Recreation Center re-opened with a few changes to ensure the safety of everyone in the facility.

The Elgin Recreation Center will be open Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. by appointment only. Appointments can be made online by visiting and clicking “Elgin Recreation Center,” or over the phone Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Reservations are available for one of three spaces that can accommodate up to four people from the same household: the studio room, gym half A and gym half B.
