A Vibrant Community Center in Burlington's Old North End

The CORE (Center of Recreation and Education), opened in 2017, is the newest addition to Burlington’s recreation facilities, located in the Old North End at the O.N.E. Community Center.

CORE offers opportunities for all ages: classes for adults, programs from partner organizations, community spaces, gymnasium, and classrooms to rent (by organizations or individuals).

The CORE is thrilled to be part of a vibrant ONE Community Center which is home to Very Merry Theatre, AALV, the Family Room, Robin’s Nest Childcare,
The Family Room and Vermont Adult Learning.
