Montclair Recreation Center

This community center is nestled in the Montclair District, complete with a duck pond, picnic areas, tennis courts, outdoor basketball court, and modern play equipment. Our center is now more accessible to community members with physical disabilities after renovations. The center offers varied, balanced, and comprehensive recreational programs at a reasonable price for all ages.



There are several play areas that are open for public use. All play areas are wheelchair accessible.


The pond is a mini wild-life sanctuary that is an extension of the Lake Merritt Wildlife Sanctuary. Please do not feed the animals. There is no fishing or catching allowed.
