Beech Acres Park RecPlex: History
The Beech Acres Parenting Center has been caring for Greater Cincinnati families for over 160 years. In 2004, the Beech Acres Parenting Center and the Anderson Township Park District entered into an exciting partnership with the lease of the Parenting Center’s indoor recreation center, now known as the RecPlex. The Parenting Center was looking for a viable community partnership that would serve their mission of “Strengthening Families for Children” while providing necessary income for their ongoing programs. The ATPD was the natural fit.
The ATPD has leased a portion of the RecPlex, formerly the Geiger Center, from the Beech Acres Parenting Center since 1990. In 1994, the opportunity for the ATPD to lease the entire building presented itself, so the ATPD jumped at the chance to expand its offerings for youth and adults. Activities such as Summer Camps, Basketball Leagues, Cornhole Leagues, children’s programs, Jr High Park Parties and art classes take place year round; check out the Park Guide or click here for a current list of programs.
The RecPlex operates on a 100% cost-recovery basis. Partnerships, sponsorships and fees for programs, events, and rentals go toward covering the cost of operation.
We are grateful the Beech Acres Parenting Center has offered this pivotal opportunity to the Anderson Township Park District. This lease enables the ATPD to better balance our offerings and reach across the generations in the provision of recreational services. Learn more about the Beech Acres Parenting Center.
