Phoenix New Times' Description
In a time when most of our tax dollars go into things we can't use (like corporate loopholes and kickbacks), the City of Gilbert has built what is by far the best rec center in metro Phoenix, and offers its use to all Valley residents for a fraction of what it costs to work out anywhere else. At only $2.50 a day for Gilbert residents, and $3.75 for others (there's even a family rate), the 50,000-square-foot center boasts a climbing wall, four racquetball courts, a huge gym, family locker rooms, killer steam room and sauna, pool tables, aerobics rooms, and Ping-Pong. There are lessons in tae kwon do, aerobics, and hip-hop dance, kids' movement classes, and summer camp programs of various types. And a fully supervised day care, also at a great rate. But the crown jewel of the place is the elevated race track. Set inside the nicely air-conditioned building, about 30 feet above ground, the track looks out on a spectacularly huge window, providing a rather inspiring view as you work out. Monthly, six month and annual passes are available, and Gilbert businesses can get a corporate discount.
Tips from foursquare
Great climbing wall and indoor track.
Wishing this park & Rec Center was closer to QC!! :-) Love it! (& So does our dog) I did notice that there were a couple of (floating upside down) ducks/geese that were not coming back up for air!
The butt and gutt class is the BEST!!!
Instead of Freestone Park it should be "Campstone Park" too many rules! The chairs were taken from us & said "these are for people" WTH? Ha
Plenty of fun classes! Pick up a schedule at the desk and see what calls to you.
