Recreation and Fitness Centers welcome guests back July 1


The Recreation and Fitness Centers are rolling out the reopening red carpet on July 1. That is the date you can enjoy the many amenities the Montanoso and Sierra Recreation and Fitness Centers offer. Memberships start at $30 per month with access to three activity-filled facilities providing something for everyone.

Families can make a splash during family swim at Sierra on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 11 am to 2 pm. While visiting, you can also savor the shade of the family cabanas, picnic area and playground. If you have young ones, hop over to the Montanoso Splash pad to cool off.

Both Sierra and Montanoso have lap swim, tennis, basketball and indoor gym options to keep up your strength and cardio. If you’re looking for that extra summer body push, join one of our bootcamp, aqua aerobics or TRX classes.

The Sierra Recreation and Fitness Center and Felipe Tennis and Recreation Center have 10 pickleball courts where all levels of play can enjoy the fastest-growing sport in the United States.  After all that exercise, you’re going to need a little rest and relaxation, and we have you covered. There are lounge chairs for you to relax and read a book; tables and umbrellas to have lunch outside; the quick dip lane to cool off from the heat; and jacuzzies to let your body recover from all that fun.

The best part? You don’t need to worry about restrictions anymore - it’s time for the best summer ever! 

See the links below for updates to each facility.

I do not easily find the hours for Montanso..only court times.

How are the dance classes addressed for the $30 membership? There are those of us who want to use the weight machines AND the dance classes.

It would be great to extend as soon as possible the facility hours to 9:00 pm on weekdays and 7:00pm on weekends. Thank you.

Very limited hours and access for members. Recreational swim hours at Sierra are 3 hours for 3 days. Summer is hot here in MV and members are not getting their money’s worth.

The City continues to reopen facilities and offer additional services as more and more staff are rehired, and is offering family-friendly activities including the splashpad and designated rec swim hours at the facilities. Many fitness opportunities are available including indoor and outdoor gym options, basketball/tennis courts, pickleball, and classes such as aqua aerobics, TRX, and boot camp. The Recreation and Community Services Department also offers many other classes, programs, and camps which may be viewed online in the MV Life publication (https://cityofmissionviejo.org/activity-guides). If you have specific questions about programs or schedules, please call 949-859-4348, option 2, as more options are being made available as the centers carefully rebound from all the closures and guideline changes.
