The HUB Recreation Center is owned and operated by the City of Marion. We opened our doors in January 2015 and celebrated our official Grand Opening in March 2015. To date, we have nearly 7,000 members whom we call Hubbers. Hundreds of guests also utilize the facility each month by purchasing a day pass. Visitors are welcome to stop by any time to take a tour and learn more about what we have to offer.

There are many benefits to becoming a member, also known as a Hubber, of The HUB Recreation Center. The first major benefit is access to our state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor track, gymnasium, three pools, on-site child watch, cafe, youth center and locker rooms. To become a Hubber, registration can be done in-person at the front desk anytime during facility hours. Visitors are also able to enjoy all of our amenities by purchasing a one-time, all-day, all inclusive day pass.
