North Recreation Center

North Fort Myers Recreation Center

“The vast majority of residents know exactly where the North Recreation Center is. After all, it is hard to miss.

Dana Kasler, director of Lee County Parks & Rec, was the guest speaker at the monthly North Fort Myers Civic Association meeting last week. The subject was the rec center and upcoming changes at the community park, but also what could be done to improve the amenities in the community.

Kasler called the North Recreation Center an enormous success: In its three years, it has become one of the busiest locales in all Lee County.

In a survey of area residents, in fact, more than 85 percent of respondents knew where the rec center was, and that more than half the users were over the age of 45, thanks to the vast array of programs offered and SHARE Club, a program of Lee Memorial Health Service that offers the 50-plus crowd many activities and services.

Kasler then asked the several dozen people at the meeting “What do you want to see?”

There are already numerous things set for the fall. The community park will get a new playground, which will move right next door to the rec center in the courtyard so they can be integrated, Kasler said.”

The 35,000-square-foot facility for the North Recreation Center includes several multipurpose rooms for meetings, youth and adult recreational and educational programs, a fitness center, game room and two gymnasiums, which are partitioned off. The gymnasium has multipurpose basketball and volleyball courts, and other sports can be played on the hardwood floor, such as the popular pickleball.

The recreation center started in 1997 in the boardroom of the little league building. Shortly after the portable was established on the south side of the shuffleboard courts. In December of 2002, a new building opened offering more programs and space for the already successful after-school program. Construction of a new 33,000-square-foot Recreation Center has been completed and opened Oct. 25, 2013.

The center amenities include a fully equipped gymnasium with basketball courts and volleyball courts, a fitness center with locker room facilities, a game room and several large multi-purpose rooms for meetings and classes.

Individual memberships for the North Fort Myers Recreation Center are $10 for a lifetime membership or a family membership is $25 for a lifetime membership. This membership can be used at all four Lee County Recreation Centers; Estero, North Fort Myers, Veterans and Wa-Ke Hatchee.

The weight room is an additional fee of $20 per month, $80 for six months or $120 for one year, per member. The weight room features cardiovascular equipment, dumbbells, and weight-lifting machines.

Located behind the North Fort Myers Library off of North Tamiami Trail (Old 41), the center/park offers lots of activities and recreation for all ages. There are four baseball fields, two footballs, and a practice field, along with a recreation building for afterschool recreation, summer camp and other classes and programs.

Twenty four shuffleboard courts, playground, and pavilion are available to the public at the North Fort Myers Recreation Center. Disc golf is growing in popularity and the course is presently under expansion and renovation.
