The rec center was perfect for a beach wedding, without having to be in the sand. It looks plain and simple, but once it was all done up, it was a beautiful location. The many windows with views of the water add a special touch. The deck out back, is perfect for a cocktail hour. Even though it was Spring Break time, parking worked out great, and was not an issue for the guest. The staff at the rec center sets up all of the tables and chairs, and the price of the venue can not be beat! You can bring in all of your own vendors, which is great, since many places have specific caterers you must use. Overall, a beautiful location.

If you are looking for a beautiful outdoor location for your wedding and you are on a tight budget, this is your place!!! My wedding planner recommended the location and when I saw it in person, I was sold. We held both our ceremony and reception here and it turned out stunningly beautiful. We had the ceremony under the oak tree overlooking the water and the weather was superb. I can't stop looking at the pictures. The setting was just breathtaking. The reception site is great as well. Since it is all white inside, it's like a blank slate. Take your vision and run with it and you can make it look like anything your heart desires! They were very easy to work with. Best of all, they set up and tear down the tables and chairs for your at no extra charge. You don't have to worry about paying to rent tables and chairs either. It's all included!

Dan and his assistant at Clearwater Recreation Center were amazing. They clearly explained to us how to reserve the location. The fee was affordable and the setup was excellent. Arranging the wedding from long distance poses several difficulties but using vendors such as Clearwater Recreation Center who are responsive and attentive makes the process that much easier. Definitely a recommended location for those who are looking to have a wedding in Clearwater, FL.

If you are looking for an affordable venue that can seat close to 200 guest than Clearwater Recreation Center is the best place. We chose this location because of location and affordability. For the location and price you can take your savings and decorate the venue yourself or hire a decorator.

We are so pleased with how everything turned out that we would recommend this venue to anyone who has to pay for their own wedding or would like to pay for their own wedding. The venue has minimal restrictions and allows you to provide your own caterer and provide your own alcohol for your wedding or event.

They have held many weddings/events and will assist you through your planning. Dan who was assisting us was very pleasant and professional. We live in Denver, CO and corresponded with Dan from a far, along with our DJ, Grant Hemond and associates and our wonderful photographer, Melissa Lauren from Melissa Lauren Images.

We are very pleased with how our day turned out and the pictures from the venue look amazing!

We loved having our wedding here! The venue is beautiful with a big open room with windows covering two of the walls so you get a great view of the ocean, deck, and boat docks outside. We were able to have our wedding outdoors, cocktail hour on the deck, and dinner/dancing inside so we were really able to use all of the space we were allotted. They let you bring in all outside vendors here without any additional fees, meaning we could bring in our caterer, bartender, and DJ and not have to choose from a list of pre-approved vendors from them. You also don't have to pay any extra insurance to serve alcohol here which saved us even more money. All of your tables and chairs are included with the price here and you can take them outside (which some venue's don't allow)- and you don't have to set up or take any of them down. You just give them a diagram of how you want everything set up and they do it all for you. What I really liked about the Rec. Center is that they don't overcomplicate things; so many of the venue's we looked at had such a huge list of rules and regulations. They make it so easy to plan things here and (within reason) let you do what you want with the space. We were able to put up ceiling decor, drop off most of our things the night before (and were able to leave it until the next day so we didn't have to clear out the whole space the night of the wedding), hang lanterns from trees, and have our dog there. We loved having our ceremony/reception here and it's the perfect place to have an outdoor wedding, especially if you've got guests from out of town. They are also very affordable and I didn't see one other place that could compare to their prices. I would highly recommend them!

This was an awesome location for our destination wedding reception. The deck for the cocktail hour was gorgeous -- guests loved the view. We hired a company to decorate and transform the interior from a blank canvas to a gorgeous reception. It was nice being able to bring in our own alcohol and caterer.

We held our ceremony and reception here and it turned out beautifully. The setting is gorgeous, and I could have the ceremony by the water, without having to deal with the sand. Its really affordable, and you can book it for the amount of time that you want. The reception hall was spacious and they let us decorate it ahead of time. Its kind of a blank canvas, so any theme/color will work there.
The room holds up to 180 people.. we had 140 and it was perfect. We also used two of the round tables out on the deck, and there was still plenty of space. The venue made for great photos by the water! It was really a perfect place to have it!

Clearwater Beach Recreation Center Social Hall, Speechless! That is what we have to say about the venue location, view and services provided! This was the very best location to have our daughter's wedding reception! With windows all around, the beautiful view over the bay was in every direction! The outside deck is very large and was decorated too and our bar and Hor 'Doeuvres station was setup on the deck, along with high top tables, so guests could enjoy being outside any time they wished. Inside was decorated beauifully as well and it was wonderful having most of the tables and chairs needed available already at the venue, so our planner didn't have to rent additional ones. The kitchen made it easy for our caterer to do their job as well. I know this is a popular venue for wedding receptions and we were very lucky to find it availalbe for our daughter's wedding! If you are reading this, you'd better reserve it now or it will be unavailable later! Thank you! Sincerely, Bill and Carol (Crystal and Daniel's 3/6/2011 Wedding)

Our coordinator- Marty- was really friendly and helped out a lot, definitely made friends with a lot of our guests. The venue as a whole was simply gorgeous and let us have pretty much free reign with what we wanted to do, was really helpful in decor. The only complaint I have would be the flexibility of time- it was difficult for us getting everything set up and ready in time. However, they were professional and courteous and our vendors liked working with them as well. During the reception indoors, the natural light was beautiful. And our guests saw dolphins outside from the dock- so pretty. The dock was a great place to take photos as well. And, this all came at a fabulous price. I definitely recommend the Rec Complex to other brides!

I just got married here November 18th and could not have asked for a more beautiful venue and location. The rec center is a blank slate, perfect for the DIY bride, like myself.
