Community Center Passes

Available at the following community centers:
Charles Jordan  |  East Portland  |  Matt Dishman  |  Mt. Scott  |  Southwest

Gain access to drop-in activities during their scheduled times. Amenities include the fitness center, group exercise, water exercise, whirlpool spa, play swims, and open gym times. Swim lessons, camps, and classes are offered at a set fee—no additional admission fee will be charged when participating in registered activities. 

Looking for ongoing access to drop-in activities? This is the pass for you! One monthly fee provides unlimited visits to scheduled drop-in programs throughout the facility. For your convenience, Active Passes will auto-renew each month. Simply pay for the first month upon registering and all future monthly payments are deducted directly from your debit or credit card. 

20-Visit Passes are a great option for those who plan to work out only once a week. In addition, 20-Visit Passes are great for organizations that would like to bring a larger group of visitors (please call ahead). The passes provide unlimited day-use of the facility at a discounted rate.

For those visiting the center just for the day to swim or workout. Our daily drop-in fee provides access to drop-in activities throughout the entire day. Shoot hoops in the morning, enjoy an exercise class at noon, and relax in the whirlpool spa in the evening...all for the cost of one daily admission fee!

Passes must be purchased in-person. Click here to view fees.
