R-Centers, Rochester Community Centers

R-CentersBanner

 Recreation and Community Centers across the city have a new name. Introducing R-Centers, a bold new take on city recreation. The new R-Centers are more than just a new name, they are a complete rethinking of what it means to be a true community center. It is a promise to Rochester residents to be a positive force in the community that molds and changes lives. R-Centers strive to meet this mission by offering first-rate programs, facilities and professional staff to promote healthy living, education, creativity, self-discovery and positive relationships.
