The Center

Rosenwald is called a community center, but without community support and involvement, it is simply a center. The community center houses the Department of Parks and Recreation's administrative offices, public meeting rooms, gymnasium, arts and crafts rooms, preschool rooms, dance room, exercise room, and outdoor basketball court and playground. The center is closed on Saturday and Sunday, except for special activities and classes. Operating hours may vary seasonally.
