The Lincoln Recreation Center offers a wide variety of amenities and services aimed at improving the quality of life of College Station residents. Residents can take advantage of services in the areas of youth programming, senior services, special events, and community outreach. The facility includes a gymnasium, game room, fitness room, multipurpose room, zero depth water park, and a 13,000 square foot covered pavilion.

HISTORY
Originally constructed as the A&M Consolidated Negro School, the Lincoln Center is located at 1000 Eleanor in W.A. Tarrow Park. The facility has been used at one time or another as a neighborhood center, recreation center, senior citizen's center, maintenance shop, and was formerly the headquarters for the College Station Parks and Recreation Department. The center now provides a variety of recreational and social services to the citizens of College Station, as well as an indoor gymnasium, 1/3 mile lighted jogging trail, and playground. The Wayne Smith Baseball Fields are included in this park. A State Historic Site Marker is also located here for African American Education in College Station.

OLDER ADULT PROGRAMS
Older adults in College Station have long sought a comfortable place to socialize and engage in activities and programs designed specifically for them. The Lincoln Recreation Center is now that place from 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. Special activities and groups include chair exercise, needle point, walking, bible study, nutrition education and more.

YOUTH PROGRAMS
Youth programming is a key element of the Lincoln Recreation Center. We offer a positive after-school and summer environment for ages 6 to 18 years.
