Whimsy and fun
Flying saucers, origami birds, steel trees…oh my. Step inside the doors to TREC (it’s FREE!) and discover a whole new world of fun. More than 7,000 square feet of the center is devoted to interactive exhibits. Visit Our Photo Gallery
Sure, we want you to come inside TREC, but then you must GET OUT! Go explore Presque Isle State Park to find all the things you learned about inside the center. Our recreation programs can connect you with the outdoors in a whole new way.
Take a Tour!
Get a fun -- and a bit crazy -- tour of TREC in this 10-minute video produced by Keystone Extra.
What’s 75 feet tall, made of glass and a great workout spot? It’s TREC’s very own “lighthouse” of sorts. Climb the 131 steps (or take the elevator) and wave at the waves. It’s a view you won’t forget. See for yourself
The Ultimate School Day
