Full Blast Recreation Center will re-open this Monday.    The facility at 35 Hamblin Avenue will reopen at 7 a.m. on February 1st, and registrations will open for upcoming programs. The re-opening is possible as a result of the latest state public health orders.

Visitors must:

  • Complete a COVID-19 health screening.

  • Wear a mask at all times.
  • Bring their own water bottle.

Staff will clean and disinfect throughout the facility, and hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, and equipment disinfectant will be available.
