Recreation Center Shutdown – Due to the recent COVID-19 Pandemic, the Recreation Authority of Roseville & Eastpointe will not be conducting our routine two-week shutdown at the end of August for yearly cleaning and maintenance for 2021. Over the past year with the minimal activities the Recreation Authority Center was able to conduct and maintain a clean facility. Please check back in Spring/Summer 2022 Newsletter for 2022 Shutdown dates.

Covid Policies - As we continue to progress through this pandemic, there may need to be modifications or cancellations at any point to programs or facilities in order to comply with new guidelines from the state to keep everyone safe. Guests that are not vaccinated are encouraged to wear a mask while in the Recreation Authority Center. We ask for your patience and understanding during this time. 

“Snow Day” Policy - When Roseville Community Schools AND Eastpointe Community Schools are closed due to inclement weather (i.e. “snow day”), ALL programs and sports practices affiliated with the Recreation Authority Center will be cancelled.  In addition, all scheduled senior programs, SMART van transportation and drop-in activities will also be canceled.  The building will remain open for registrations and inquiries.
