Pigeon Forge is loaded with fun attractions like WonderWorks, the Titanic Musuem, and the Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster. But in the heart of Pigeon Forge lies one of the largest attractions you’ll find in the area and one of the most easily forgotten: the Pigeon Forge Community Center!
While you’re driving around town looking for that next big thing to keep your guests wildly entertained, Pigeon Forge’s 86,000-square-foot center of fun is right under your nose! Located at 170 Community Center Drive in Pigeon Forge, the Pigeon Forge Community Center contains all the following amenities for you to enjoy:
• 3 basketball courts
• 2 racquet ball courts
• 10-lane bowling center
• aquatic center
• walking track
• and so much more!
A favorite feature of the Pigeon Forge Community Center is the Aquatic Center. The indoor portion of the Aquatic Center features a 25-yard, 6-lane pool, which is open throughout the year. You’ll also have access to a shallow water baby pool. The outdoor portion of the Aquatic Center features a large pool complete with a water slide and kid’s zone. This pool opens Memorial Day weekend and closes in August.
If you’re planning to come to the Smoky Mountains for an extended stay, be sure to check out the water aerobics classes and swim lessons offered at the Aquatic Center. Another fun option is to rent the indoor or outdoor pool for special celebrations while you vacation in Pigeon Forge. Perfect for birthdays or large group outings, a pool party at the Pigeon Forge Aquatic Center can be reserved by calling (865) 429-7373.
Since the Pigeon Forge Community Center was built in 2000, it has become a popular venue for several exciting events throughout the year. Two well-loved and completely FREE events we want you to know about include trick-or-treating at the community center on the Thursday before Halloween. This non-scary event brings in more than 4,000 participants each year as vendors from the Pigeon Forge community set up displays and give away tons of candy!
Christmas is another special time in the Smokies. On the first Tuesday in December, the Woody Brackin’s Memorial Christmas Tree is lit at the Pigeon Forge Community Center, and after the lighting, guests are invited to stay for snacks, entertainment, games, and a special visit from Mr. Clause himself!
The Pigeon Forge Community Center is open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Entrance to the facility is based on a membership system. However, day, week-long, and monthly passes may by purchased, so visitors to Pigeon Forge need not stay away! For more information about the center, call the front desk at (865) 429-7373.
