Activities Calendar


"The Danbury War Memorial provides a lot of amenities to the community at an affordable cost.  I've brought my dog to the Saturday obedience classes and the only requirements were to bring his proof of rabies vaccinations and $5.00.  I always recommend this place to everyone I know!"

"This building is the heart of Danbury. Many recreational activities like gym, dance, karate, volleyball, basketball and many more. I love this place."

"Walking through this plaza makes me think how important were (and still are) for Danbury's citizens, the individuals who gave their lives to protect the peace, even in battlefields far away from home. I salute this act! It is a very nice place to spend some time."

"Great for the community; not the biggest gym, but they have alot to offer for the youth and they will work with you if you have a hard time paying for a gym membership, they will help you."

"Great affordable facility to get a workout. The staff are really nice and facility well maintained."

"Great gym, its clean, staff is friendly, has a basketball court and excellent parking. Its been a favorite gym of mine when I first started weight lifting in my twenties. Great memories and made friends."

"Wonderful old school gym, barbells/dumbbells. Very easy to sign up and following up with membership. Just come, sign up, and start training."

"What a treasure in downtown Danbury! We participated in a fundraiser this past weekend. Very friendly staff. The Veterans Walkway of Honor and the war memorials are beautiful."

The Danbury War Memorial was built in 1951 and was designed and built in honor of the men and women who fought in World War I and II.  Just after World War II ended, every morning, students at Danbury High School put their pennies and nickels in a pot to fund a memorial to honor those who so recently served their country.
