Hip Hip Hooray, The Pelham Fritz Recreation Center Is Reopening In Marcus Garvey Park In Harlem

The Pelham Fritz Recreation Center in Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem is reopening this Tuesday, May 10, 2022, after a 2+ year hiatus!

Pelham Fritz has been closed to members since March 2020.

During the height of the pandemic, the Center was repurposed as a food distribution hub in support of COVID-19-related services.

The center remained closed while they made improvements to the building—including reconstruction of the front lobby, retaining walls, and park entrance.

The center now features a new vestibule, new signage, and front windows, and enhanced ADA accessibility.

They’re excited to welcome members back and they’re inviting the Harlem community to join.

Membership is free for New Yorkers 24 years and under and low-cost for adults and seniors.

More information is available on our website.
