Although the space is lined with screens and systems like Xbox One S, Xbox One X, PlayStation 4 Pro and virtual reality, the space is not only a “haven” for gamers but, an incubator space for small businesses and creatives of all kinds.

Stay tuned in to their upcoming happenings, like their upcoming NBA 2K18 Tournament via their website or Facebook page (click below flyer)..

Jackson’s Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative and the Office of Prevention, Intervention and Opportunity for Youth and Young Adults.

Participating recreation centers include:

· Lonnie Burten, 2511 East 46th St.
· Cudell, 1910 West Blvd.
· Glenville, 680 E. 113th.
· Zelma George, 3155 Martin L. King Blvd.
· Michael Zone, 6301 Lorain Ave.
· Earle B. Turner, 11300 Miles Ave.
· Fairfax, 2335 E. 82nd Street
· Thurgood Marshall, 8611 Hough Ave.

Normal business hours for recreation centers are 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Fridays and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Each recreation center will offer youth basketball leagues as well as game room activities and swimming programs.
