Fitness Class Descriptions

  • Aqua Aerobics - A moderately paced class with less stress on the joints. This class can include cardio and core conditioning. Come experience the benefits of water.
  • Gear Indoor Cycling – An aerobic exercise that takes place on a spinning bike. As you pedal, motivating music plays and the instructor talks you through a visualization of an outdoor cycling workout: “You’re going up a long hill now, you can’t see the top yet…” During the class you vary your pace – sometimes pedaling as fast as you can, other times cranking up the tension and pedaling slowly from a standing position – this helps you to focus inwardly and work on your mind as well as your body.
  • Korean Yoga – This class has 3 unique characteristics: the mastery and use of energy, enhancing the body brain connection, and self-managed holistic health care. A typical class begins with “meridian stretching” exercise, which is believed to stimulate the energy of the body. This is followed by a sequence of yoga postures and meditation.

Home About Us



The South Park Recreation Center collects donations from people who want to make a difference. We invite you to be a part of the excitement!

Board & Staff

The rec center is staffed by one full-time Manager who oversees the part-time staff: fitness instructors, lifeguards and front desk staff. Our Board of Directors is responsible for the overall operation of the rec center.


In 1993, a recreation center committee was organized by a group of citizens who shared the belief that South Park was in need of a facility for indoor recreation and various community programs. We opened on February 15, 2005.



Mission Statement

"The South Park, Parks and Recreation District aims to enrich the lives of as many members as possible, in our community, by providing the biggest diversification of recreational and social opportunities that our resources and imagination will allow. We may be small, but we aim to grow in quantity and quality."
