Eureka Valley Rec Center

Eureka Valley Rec Center

Choose from a wide selection of groups, clubs and classes at this vibrant community center in the Castro District. After a full renovation, the indoor basketball court and play area look brand new again. The expanded building now houses a Teen Center and two meeting rooms. The auditorium, gym, lobby, activity room and mezzanine were also remodeled.

Outside, the baseball diamond, tennis court and enclosed dog run were all remodeled, along with the children’s playground. Kids frolic safely on the modern play equipment, surrounded by a low fence and soft rubber floor. The surface design was inspired by “The Wizard of Oz,’ complete with yellow brick road.
