In April 2009, the City of Pearland began construction on the new Recreation Center & Natatorium located at 4141 Bailey Road. The facility aims to provide additional fitness and aquatic opportunities for both the Pearland community and surrounding cities alike. The 107,000 square foot Recreation Center & Natatorium is a joint partnership with the Pearland Independent School District and the Pearland Economic Development Corporation.

This modern facility has many things to offer you and your entire family. From the weight room to the Kidz Korner, the indoor track to the yoga room, everyone can enjoy their time here at the recreation center! Fitness enthusiasts can choose from a wide variety of group exercise classes, including Zumba®, Spinning®, yoga, circuit training, water aerobics, cardio training and more. Please see our Group Activity Classes link below in the Amenities section for a complete listing of current fitness and exercise classes.

Amenities include:

Inside the natatorium is a competition pool (50 meters x 25 yards), two 3-meter diving boards, two 1-meter diving boards and a warm-up pool (25 yards long by 3 lanes wide). The competition pool can be set in seven different configurations for recreational/lap swim, long and short course swim meets, water polo, competition diving and synchronized swimming. The warm-up pool is a shallow pool with a zero-depth entry. Primary uses for the warm-up pool include water exercise classes, swimming lessons and therapeutic recreation programs. The natatorium will also serve both the Pearland and Dawson High School swim and water polo teams.
