Trinidad Recreation Center


The Trinidad Recreation Center is a full service facility that serves constituents from toddlers to seniors in the heart of the Trinidad community. This single-story flat is equipped with specialized program areas such as a dance studio, a senior lounge, a collegiate sized gym, turf field, indoor fitness center, computer lab, crafts room, teen room, and a host of table games such as pool & ping pong. Site staff as well as contractors with specialized skills and certifications facilitate programs.   From our hero themed playground for kids, to our designated toddler playground, Trinidad offers something for the entire family and community.
