The City of Cleveland Division of Recreation announced it will extend hours at eight recreation centers for the summer, including Lonnie Burten Recreation Center. Wednesday through Saturday from now through August 12, 2017, these rec centers will remain open until 11 p.m.
Made possible in part by the generosity of the Cleveland Foundation, the extended hours are aimed at keeping youth engaged in positive activities during the late evening hours at recreation centers as an alternative to being on the street.

Each recreation center will offer youth basketball leagues as well as game room activities and swimming programs. Off-duty police officers will be present at each facility.
