Goodson Recreation Center

Goodson is everything you're looking for in a local recreation center - and so much more. Swim, run, bike, lift, hit the courts, take a class, explore your creativity, hone your skills or discover new ones. You can do it all.

And when you're ready for an outdoor adventure, the High Line Canal Trail and deKoevend Park are a few steps away.

Recreation Center Safe Return

Buck, Goodson and Sheridan Recreation Centers are anticipated to open mid-June and are awaiting local county or state orders.  Please check back for updates.
