Recreation Center

The Rec Center was officially opened on July 1, 2001. The building is debt free with all funds raised from cash contributions, grants, fund raisers. User fees expenses are expected to cover daily operating expenses. However we still need to buy additional equipment for the exercise area and donations are needed for that purpose.  As you will see from the pictures we have quite a bit of weight training equipment that was purchased from the University of Missouri but we still need cardiovascular and aerobic equipment.

The Sturgeon Recreation Center was made possible, in part, by the hard work and dedication of many Sturgeon residents. To insure the success of the Center, we need the community's continued support. Volunteers are needed to provide a properly supervised center. Donations are welcome.

Please make your tax deductible donation to the Sturgeon Recreation Center c/o The City of Sturgeon.

Friday evening and Saturday rentals will take priority in the scheduling of any activities at the Recreation Center. The Recreation Center will not be available for general use if rented. Regularly scheduled City activities will take precedence over rental requests.

Resident/Alumni are totally responsible for the behaviour and actions of their guest at all times.  Guest must sign in with the resident and leave with the resident.

The Center is operated by paid monitors.  All monitors must be at least 18 years of age, have a background check on file, and Mayor's approval.

In the mornings. a monitor will not be present, therefore, a magnetic card access system will be used as the method of entry. All annual pass cardholders will be issued one magnetic card at the time they buy their membership. Additional or replacement cards will cost $10.00 each.

This facility is being operated "NOT FOR PROFIT". All user and rental fees collected go toward the operating cost of the Recreation Center. We strongly encourage annual pass cards as the most economical and efficient method of management.
