Business Hours & Contact Info

Our team operates out of two main locations: the Recreation Office ("the Rec") and the Rochester Arena. The Recreation Office serves as the nucleus for department business and program registrations. Both locations are staffed and open to the public based on seasonal programming needs.

Recreation Office aka The Rec

The Rochester Recreation Department is located inside of the James W. Foley Memorial Community Center. Recreation department space at the Community Center includes the gymnasium, the Rec Office and two conference rooms. To best support department programs and activities, we have made some recent changes to our area in the Community Center:

  • The building entrance facing Spaulding High School (the 'old' Main Entrance) is now an entrance specifically for Recreation Department programs.
  • When arriving for a Rec program or activity, please ring our new doorbell and a staff member will come welcome you inside.
  • Community members who wish to access other organizations inside of the building must use the new Main Entrance doors that face Wakefield Street.
  • We appreciate our community's support in providing a designated, safe recreation space for our department program participants!
