The current Hershey Recreation Center has served our community well since 1963. Now, it’s time for us to build a new center to meet the needs of our residents for future decades to come.

Plans are underway for the new Hershey Community Center, which will provide additional recreational and social opportunities. The new center, which will open in the spring of 2020, will give residents of all ages more room to swim, participate in classes, hold community meetings and enjoy socializing together.
