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...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!

Hi everyone! I’m excited to announce that I have been named the new travel expert for Erie, PA. I have lived in Erie all my life. I really don’t want to admit that it’s over 50 years! People who have never visited Erie cannot believe that there’s really lots to do here. We have the beautiful Presque Isle State Park with beaches, bike/walking trail, etc. People come from New York, Canada, etc. to take advantage of our Peach Street shopping area – no tax on clothes in Pennsylvania!
