Free for One Year: Swim, Play, Exercise, Learn at NYC Parks Recreation Centers


New York City - About 70% of the NYC Parks recreation centers reopened on September 13, 2021. To entice New Yorkers back into these community spaces, the Parks Department is offering free one-year memberships for anyone who signs up before December 31, 2021.

Memberships include access to free fitness classes, indoor swimming pools, exercise equipment, sports programs, game rooms, and more. Your one-year membership begins the day you sign up. So if you waited until the last day of 2021, your free membership would continue through all of 2022.

How much are you saving with a free membership?

Annual fees vary, depending on your age and access level. For adults between ages 25 and 61, the annual fee can be as high as $150 which includes access to all recreation centers. If you don’t care about swimming at the indoor pools, your annual fee drops to $100. For veterans, young adults, seniors, and people with disabilities, the annual fee is as low as $25. Any New Yorker under age 18 already qualifies for a free membership.

Our recreation centers are more than just indoor gyms! Join a recreation center and become part of a community of New Yorkers who support each other. With a membership, you can get fit, learn new skills, develop your hobbies, and make friends.

Recreation centers are located across the five boroughs. You can find more information on the NYC Parks Department website. As of today, a few indoor pools remain closed, even at the centers that have reopened.
