It was a nice facility. It was fairly clean. Could have used a little more updating. But there are lots of good venue spaces and outside and indoor activities. For sure some of the staff might improve a little bit

We've been using the facility for 3 years now and it is amazing how little upkeep it seems that happens from floors to facilities to the locker rooms. More should be done to keep the floors and entry areas clean and appealing.

This is a very nice facility and accommodated many students and schools. Things were very organized and ran efficiently. The only complaint I would have is that it was very cold outside, and nearly as cold inside. I'm sure the kids needed it that way to be comfortable to play, but we wore jackets the entire time. Very nice facility.

I went to take the kids one day to play mini putt. We hadn't been in about a year. The park was freezing cold and the mini putt was in serious neglect and I wasn't even sure the park was open. We never recognized any employees to try to pay for putting. If it actually costs something because it looked... More

No wonder why this place has almost gone out of business several times .... The service is awful, especially for the fitness center, not only is the part-time staff incompetent so is the director!

Great place, amazing staff, and a good place for families and sporting activities or camps. Clean environment, with a very large parking lot, easy to find! They can give you good deals to Splash Lagoon which is right across from the facility so its very convenient. Their prices are fair, and its a great time! The campus is making great... More

We just visited Erie and were looking for something to do on a rainy day. Came across Family First Sports Park and we stopped. It looked dead. My husband went to the door and it was open. He walked all through the arena with no one stopping him. He went into rooms and the gym and could not find anyone.... More

Clean park, large paring lot, easy to get to, much variety and not real expensive. You can pay for each attraction separate. Large arcade. Go carts and bumper boats etc. NO DISLIKES !
