Coomes Recreation Center Reopening

Coomes Recreation Center Reopening

The Town of Abingdon is pleased to announce the phased reopening of the Coomes Recreation Center on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. The plan to gradually reopen allows the center to provide a basic level of service, maintain health standards to prevent the spread of COVID-19, while being mindful of overall economic balance as we continue to recover from the financial impact of the pandemic.

The first phase or reopening will allow members and visitors to utilize the main areas of the building including the cardio suite, spin bike area, weight rooms, indoor walking track and gymnasium during reduced hours Monday through Saturday.  State and local guidelines MUST be followed in order to access the center to safely utilize the services provided. This phase will not include the use of the indoor pool and locker rooms. We will find balance in both the health of our community and the continued financial well-being of the Town prior to moving into the second phase, which is expected to be sometime during the winter months. Below are the hours and holiday schedule for the first phase reopening that will be effective through at least December 31, 2020.


Center Hours
Monday – Friday         7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Saturday                          8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Holidays (Facility Closed)

We look forward to providing indoor recreation once again for our community, and appreciate the patience and understanding throughout the past several months of navigating the best way to safely provide this service.
