About the Center

This is one of the city's 16 recreation facilities and the newest, one of a kind two story facility combining mostly elementary and teen activities on the lower half. The second story is dedicated more to adult programming, such as the dance room, soundproof music room, pottery and social activities. The second story balcony overlooks the beautiful gymnasium, which houses several basketball leagues, some of which have been in this center for over fifty years.


History of the Center

The original Roberts Youth Center was dedicated to the youth of our city by Mrs. R. W. Roberts in memory of her husband, Mr. Roberts. The 16,500 sq. ft. facility opened in May 1958. In May of 1975, to accommodate the growing need for adult recreation programs, two homes were purchased and converted into program space. Our new facility replaces the outdated centers on the 50th anniversary of Roberts Recreation.
