The Community & Recreation Center (C&RC) at Boyce Mayview Park is celebrating its tenth anniversary this summer. “We are very excited and we’re going to celebrate with a week long commemoration so that everyone has a chance to come up and experience the C&RC! We would like to thank everyone who has supported us during these ten years,” said Melissa Lindberg, marketing and membership services supervisor.
Since the grand opening on June 13, 2009, the C&RC has become a natural oasis and personal playground that extends fun and excitement beyond the backyard for families in Upper St. Clair. “It has become a corner stone for the Township. We see all populations and ages at the C&RC,” said Melissa. “It’s a gathering point. You don’t necessarily need to be a member or be into fitness or swimming to enjoy it. We have a variety of programs going on every day.”
The C&RC’s first floor includes a large community gathering area, two full-size gymnasiums, a 3600-square-foot community room, two group exercise studios, and locker rooms. The second floor contains a state-of-the-art fitness center and a low-impact 1/8-mile walking/jogging track. The indoor aquatics center hosts an interactive water structure and gadgets, slides, tots’ area, handicap lift, four-lane lap pool, large whirlpool, and two poolside party rooms. Especially attractive to the indoor pool users is the pool’s zero-depth entry and resistance current channel.
The zero-depth entry outdoor aquatics facility hosts 6000 square feet of water, an interactive water structure and gadgets, including a 600-gallon bucket that teeters over and splashes the crowd, tot and teen slides, lily pads, and a handicap lift. Surrounding the outdoor aquatics area are lounge chairs, grassy areas, covered pavilions, vending machines, and separate outdoor changing rooms.
“If you’ve yet to visit the C&RC, come on up! Plenty to do, there’s something for everyone,” said Melissa. “Our location is perfectly situated in the 475+ acres of Boyce Mayview Park. The park features the Miracle Field, The Clubhouse Playground, two baseball/softball fields, a multi-purpose field, concessions stand, pavilions, hiking trails, and community gardens.
“We encourage all residents to come check out the current programs happening at the C&RC. It’s a great time to get involved,” encouraged Melissa.
