The Admiral Coontz Recreation has a walking track (12 laps equal 1 mile) and two basketball courts. Pickleball courts are available for use. The Play without Boundaries Sensory Room has games, puzzles and supplies for all-inclusive indoor play for adults and children.

The center is a 16,000-square-foot stone structure built in 1939 to serve as a National Guard armory. When a larger armory opened in 1977 in Huckleberry Park, the old Admiral Coontz Armory was turned over to the city and became the Admiral Coontz Recreation Center.
