Wadsworth Community Center 

The Wadsworth Community Center is a unique collaboration with the City of Wadsworth, Wadsworth City Schools, Akron Area YMCA, Wadsworth-Rittman Summa Hospital, and Wadsworth Library. This shared facility houses a 90,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility including a 4-court field house, 8-lane lap pool, family recreation pool, therapy pool, fitness center, group exercise rooms, Soprema Cafe and Senior Center, WCTV Studio, Summa Physical Therapy and Library Kiosk. This is a shared facility, therefore certain portions of the facility may be closed for high school sports or events at certain times.

Memberships are available for individuals, families, youth and seniors. Financial assistance is available for those who qualify.
