Our Facilities

In these unprecedented and uncertain times, Apex Park and Recreation District has been challenged to try to continue to provide the recreation services and programs we know our community has come to love and expect. Due to restraints in place by the CDC and state and county Safer at Home orders, we don’t have a date that we know we can open our outdoor pools in what is already a very short season. Given this unknown, coupled with the time and protections we would need to put in place to effectively re-train lifeguards in new social distancing and life-saving rescue standards, and elimination of our traditional revenue streams that help us make up for the cost of running our pools due to extended closure of our facilities, Apex has made the very difficult decision to not open any of our outdoor pools for the summer of 2020. This was a hard decision for us to make but we will continue to explore ways that our community can recreate within the county and state guidelines.

Our mission at the Apex Park and Recreation District is to enhance the health of our community – socially, emotionally, and physically – by being a gathering place and trusted resource for a variety of activities and programs that connect people and improve their quality of life. We look forward to continuing this mission on behalf of our community as soon as possible.

The Fitzmorris Recreation Center is a non-membership facility – pay each time you visit, purchase a discounted punch card or purchase an annual pass. Entry into the facility includes cardio area/weight room, outdoor pool and access to Group Fitness classes.
