About the Gym


The Parks and Recreation Department offers rentals of the Mortensen Community Center gymnasium throughout the fall, winter and spring seasons. Rental availability is limited due to programming demands. The fee is $30 per hour for residents and $60 per hour for non-residents. Reservations must be made a minimum of one week in advance, but for best availability we recommend as much notice as possible.

The Mortensen Community Center is located inside the Newington Town Hall and many Parks and Recreation programs are held here. Facility includes a full size gymnasium, arts and crafts room, multi-purpose room, and teen center.

Indoor Walking Program


The Mortensen Community Center gymnasium is available for indoor walking on weekday mornings throughout the Fall, Winter and Spring. It is generally available Tuesday through Friday from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., though walking may be cancelled due to town hall closures, special events, program changes and/or reasons beyond the control of the Parks and Recreation Department. We make every attempt possible to keep at least half the gym available for walkers; however, there may be times when the gym is not available. This is a free program open to everyone, but pre-registration is required and walkers should carry an ID with them at all times. Walkers can register at the Parks and Recreation office during business hours (Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) 18 laps around the full gym equals one mile. During the winter months, we ask that participants wear an alternate pair of shoes or boots, and carry their exercise sneakers inside. This helps us to keep the gym floor clean and dry.
