Central Square Community Center

Central Square C­­ommunity Center fitness center is reopening for members only, Monday, December 21

Per the Governor’s executive ordered issued Dec. 16, and out of the consideration by Central Square staff and the South St. Paul School District, the reopening plan will begin with the opening of the fitness room, while group fitness, pool operation and remaining facility options will be phased in as allowed.

Central Square and the fitness room will be opening under the following Limited Hours: Monday-Wednesday, December 21-23 and December 28-30       5 AM-8 PM

The pool will remain closed during this time.  Group fitness classes will not be offered, but virtual classes are available. 

Normal hours will resume Monday, January 4, 2021.  Regular Hours:  Monday-Friday 5 AM-8 PM, Saturday 7 AM-12 PM.  The indoor pool will reopen as well as limited group fitness classes. Class sizes will be reduced to satisfy capacity and social distancing requirements. 

Important items to note:

We will be following capacity guidelines allowing 25% capacity.  

Individuals using the equipment must remain 12 feet apart as marked in the fitness room. 

Masks must be worn in the building at all times, including during workout and in locker rooms. Masks may be removed while in the pool or while showering. 

As we announced before closing the facility in November, members are not being charged the monthly rate for the month of December.  Details about the Community Center operations in January will be available soon. Paid in full memberships will be extended based on terms of closure. 

We will continue to remain diligent in sanitizing equipment and common areas and appreciate the cooperation of our members in this effort of keeping our community safe.
