​Second Ward Gym

​For the health and safety of our staff and visitors, Mecklenburg County is limiting access to many county facilities due to the current COVID-19 health concern.  All Recreation, Nature, Aquatic Centers as well as playgrounds and other mass gathering spots are closed until further notice. At this time we are cancelling upcoming programs, events, and parties.  We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you again once this health concern has passed.

Second Ward Gym

2nd Ward Gymnasium sits adjacent to the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center and is another asset to the facility.  Second Ward High School was built in 1923 and closed in 1969 by urban renewal.  The gymnasium is all that remains.  Space includes a basketball court and cycle studio.  The facility is used for fitness, athletics, camps and other programs.
