“Relax and unwind in a friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

I went to Claude Moore Recreation Center for 5 years before moving to NC. The staff and atmosphere is great. I loved the open space main gym, running track and the pool. If you have kids there is a family pool with slides and a number of varying depth pools suitable for any age and skill.
You can enjoy yourself in the main gym, using aerobic equipment, weights machines, do any exercise on the floor you want. If you rather play basketball, or work on your volleyball skills, balls are available and you can do that solo or with friends, or make new friends. For the swimming maniacs, the pool is great, most the time offers short course distances but varying depth. There is some additional equipment that you can use, such as boards, weights etc. And if you wish to do some running, but weather is bad and you hate a treadmill, there is a track, with 13 to 15 laps to a mile.
And for those who love a challenge there is also a rock climbing wall.
I guess the only downsides were occasional swim meets on weekends that made it hard to park and impossible to use the pool.
You can get snacks and drinks from the vending machines, so do not expect a superb meal, but it will sustain you if you need it. There are stores close by if you prefer to buy something you actually like.
I would say it is the best gym around.

“Go to place for a rainy day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

With a variety of activities from workout equipment, indoor running track, rock climbing wall, lap pool and a separate family pool area with a kids play area, lazy river (short), waterside (very dark), and hot tub its a great way to spend a rainy or cold day. It is a bit expensive if you just want to kill an hour or so but still recommended. For locals they offer lots of great classes and lessons - mostly during the day and geared towards stay at home mom's but there are evening and weekend offerings for the most popular classes (they fill up fast)

“Terrific fun and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

This is the cheapest gym around but the best. Clean well maintained with lots of equipment. We go daily for the pool, both lap and family pool. The family pool has a jacuzzi, whirlpool and lap area with current. Great fun.

“Great Park, check it out, Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Most people dont' know about this park and all that it has to offer. It is definitely worth checking out and also enjoying the other aspects of the park.

“Egg hunt for toddlers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Did an egg hunt here with my two year d. It was great!! Good value, they had more than just the hunt, there were crafts for the kids to do, games to play and of course a visit from the Easter bunny himself. All the staff was friendly and helpful. It looked like a great facility from that I saw.
