Central Square Community Center aims to provide the whole South St. Paul community with workout options, which means the facility boasts a little something for everyone.
There is nothing standard about Saint Paul Athletic Club. At once a gym and spot for social gathering, the club was originally founded back in 1916, and has managed to maintain much of its original splendor and grandeur from that bygone era. Ellipticals are situated amidst eggshell-hued pillars and beneath sparkling chandeliers, while large arched windows allow natural light to flood into the hardwood floored yoga studio that once functioned as a grand dining room. Various degrees of membership provide multiple options for prospective members, which includes access to the facility's many perks?including a full bar and a lavish lobby lit by an ancient fireplace.
As soon as the weather warms, the team at River's Edge Apple River inflates tubes, cranks on the water for slides, and opens their doors to the public for fun on the river. They've been keeping up those traditions since the 1960s, and their experience shows. This season, families and friends will be heading to the Apple River to float all day and, at the end of the day, a free shuttle takes everyone back to the parking lot. Tubing groups and campers can visit the bar for grub, live music, and tube-shaped onion rings.
Apple River Hideaway's mile-long shoreline unfolds its verdant foliage for tents, campers, and travelers to soak up the sun's rays river-side or recline beneath the leafy canopies of towering trees. Staffers rent out rubber tubes for bobs down the Apple River, where friends can admire the stunning scenery as they sail over rapids, beneath a road bridge, and beside an off-duty Charybdis. Offering an idyllic respite from the bustle of city life, the campsite makes for an ideal after-party spot for those attending a nearby concert.
At Aqua-Tots Swim Schools, experienced instructors strive not only to equip students with water-safety skills but to instill a lifelong passion for swimming. To this end, they limit classes to no more than four swimmers to ensure individual attention, and they divide students into eight swimming levels to keep classes challenging. Once students progress to a more advanced swim level, instructors congratulate them with a ribbon and swim certificate, which students can fold into a paper boat and rescue from sinking. In addition to swim lessons, Aqua-Tots Swim Schools hosts family-friendly events throughout the year, from birthday parties to CPR classes.
