The Grinnell Athletic & Recreation Center (GARC) was built in 1998 and includes a multi-purpose gymnasium, locker rooms, two offices, and an open lobby. The city of Grinnell’s Parks & Recreation leases the GARC facility year round for its offices and various indoor programs and activities.
The cost of attending open gym hours is $3.00 for children and adults. There is no charge for senior citizens. To purchase an open gym pass, you must go to the city of Grinnell/Recreation department office, now located in the GARC. Monthly and yearly passes are available. Passes are valid during all open gym hours.
Please download the GARC flyer for more information on GARC and its facility usage.
