The Muskingum Recreation Center (MRC) is a non-profit corporation organized in June of 2009. Although Muskingum Recreation Center’s existence is brief, the four entities that came together to form this partnership, the Muskingum County Community Foundation (MCCF), the Muskingum Family Y (MFY), Genesis HealthCare System and Ohio University Zanesville (OUZ), have a long history of service to Muskingum County and its residents. In January of 2009 individuals from the four entities came together and began to work collaboratively on a plan to construct an indoor community pool and recreation center for the residents of Muskingum County. During this three year period, the partners worked with a consultant to develop a complete business plan for a 100% self-sustaining Aquatic/Recreation Center.

The Muskingum Recreation Center (MRC) is located on the Ohio University Zanesville Campus adjacent to the Littick Hall Gymnasium. The MRC promotes health and wellness through recreational, fitness, and educational programming to a multi-generational population from infants through older adults. These activities include swimming, basketball, volleyball, indoor cycling, walking/running, strength training, yoga, group exercise classes, water aerobics, cardiovascular exercise and so much more. In addition to standard health and wellness activities, the MRC offers programming to specifically targeted at-risk residents such as those identified as suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, heart disease and other major health issues.
