Scheffer Recreation Center offers educational programs, after school activities, family events, youth and adult athletics, field rentals, rental space for parties, meetings, and events, and so much more.
Site of the Future Frogtown Community Center
Construction of the new Frogtown Community Center began in spring 2018. The old Scheffer Recreation Center building will remain open for as long as possible during construction. Athletic fields will be limited or unavailable for use during construction. Alternative locations for outdoor athletic leagues are TBD. The new Frogtown Community Center is expected to open in fall 2019.
