Eastside Recreation Center (ERC)

Eastside Recreation Center (ERC) - The ERC will not be reopening at least through December. In the interim, ERC individual monthly memberships will be accepted at The Centre at the current ERC monthly rate of $28.

As a member of ERC – you can use your current membership card at The Centre.  To activate your membership, please email Brett Lind (lind_b@cityofelgin.org) and Santiago Cervantes (cervantes_s@cityofelgin.org) to let us know when you want to start coming to The Centre of Elgin for workouts.  We will extend your membership accordingly based on the number of days missed during the closure.  As soon as ERC opens – you will be able to switch back to working out at ERC right away.

If you choose to wait until ERC is able to open, we will activate and extend your membership from your start date back at ERC.  If you are not comfortable coming back yet – we can also wait and activate your membership when you feel ready. We are really looking forward to having you back at the Eastside Recreation Center and will keep you updated with details of our future opening date.
