About The Center

Childs Park Recreation Center has a long tradition in the South St. Petersburg area for providing classes, youth and teen programs and a place to have social events. Our before school, after school, and summer camps focus on St. Pete Values, a set of values at the core of all of our programs for elementary through middle school youth. Take advantage of our new fitness center, dance room and kitchen facilities.
