Description

PARK NOTICE: The track will be closed beginning July 15.

It’s happening! The track at Eastern Henrico Rec Center is getting replaced! Fun fact for you all: after installation, there will be a curing period before we can apply the rubber surface. This means the track will be open during part of the process and then temporarily closed again. We’ll keep you informed of the progress, and we appreciate your patience!

Available to rent, the Eastern Henrico Recreation Center is a beautiful 25,773 square foot building with a variety of programming spaces and rooms. You will find a spacious ballroom for private events, a full-sized gymnasium, a classroom, playground, and a fitness area for staying in shape through group exercise classes or individual workouts.
