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, splash pad, and a 13,000 square foot covered pavilion.

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.

Youth programming is a key element of the Lincoln Recreation Center. We offer a positive after-school and summer environment for ages 6 to 15 years. The center offers a supervised, activity-oriented program on school days. With guidance from well-trained staff, the children will learn new games, sports, create their own special works of art, and have a chance to work on homework. Please click here for more information on our youth programs.

The Lincoln Recreation Center offers programs for adults Mon.-Thu. from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. and Fri., 9 a.m.-6 p.m. This is the place to meet new friends, workout in our fitness center, enjoy indoor gym play and participate in special programs. To see a schedule of these events, click here

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. For more information on these activities click here.

After a couple of years of construction, the City of College Station is excited to announce the reopening of the W.A. Tarrow Splash Pad next to the Lincoln Recreation Center. We’ve added tipping buckets, which are always a kid favorite. Other new features include a starfish, toad and several directional spray areas.
