Due to a change in wind direction during today's controlled burn at the Botanical site, the Sanibel Recreation Center has been inundated with smoke and will be closed as of 3:00 p.m. today.


It all came from a prescribed burn of the Botanical Site there.

Youth summer camp program pick-up will be at the Center4Life, 2401 Library Way.

An update on the status of the reopening of the Recreation Center will be issued later this afternoon.

The Sanibel Recreation Center is located at 3880 Sanibel-Captiva Road. Daily, weekly and annual memberships are available. For more information call the Sanibel Recreation Center at (239) 472-0345 or visit our website at
