While closed signs have become commonplace in the year of COVID, Redstone Arsenal recreation services are open – and with them returns the rec badge.

Once again, anyone who is not affiliated with Redstone can use and obtain an installation access badge after passing a background check at the Gate 9 Visitors Center. That badge will allow the general public access to recreational and various Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation activities on post.

“Family and MWR is excited with the recent reinstatement of the recreation visitor badge and we are ready to welcome you back into our facilities,” Family and MWR’s Stephanie Stone said. “Open facilities include Redstone Lanes, Strike Zone (located inside Redstone Lanes), Links at Redstone Golf Course, Weeden Mountain Grill (located inside the Links at Redstone), the Automotive Skills Center, Arts & Crafts Frame Shop, Automated Drive-Thru Car Wash with car wash bays and Auto Detailing.”

Redstone Lanes is offering several deals to bowlers, to celebrate their reopening.

“Specials to take advantage of include Lunch and Bowl; patrons can purchase a lunch and bowl for $1, or stop by Redstone Lanes on Family Fun Day, every Saturday, 1-8 p.m. Customers can enjoy two hours of bowling, shoe rental, one large two-topping pizza and a pitcher of soda for only $40,” Stone said.

Other facilities and programs that recreation badge holders can take advantage of include: Academy of Arts program, Youth Sports program, cottage rental, conferencing and catering services, and the Easter Posey Campground.
