Clara Barton Neighborhood Recreation Center

Nestled in beautiful Cabin John, the Clara Barton Community Center provides a wide variety of programs for all ages. Senior citizen activities, family special events, a summer children's program, holiday parties, and exercise classes are just a few of the programs at the Clara Barton Community Center.

We offer activities and experiences which provide customers with personal enjoyment and satisfaction. We strive to promote health, physical fitness, learning, growth and opportunities for socialization. Where ever your interest may lie, sports, fitness, dance, music, art, or the opportunity to join together with friends and neighbors for a special celebration or social gathering, Clara Barton Community Center has something to offer you.

The surrounding outdoor area includes fields, hiking trails, tennis and basketball courts and two sets of play equipment.
