Stanton Community Center

Stanton is open Monday through Friday from 8 am to 8 pm, Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm and Sundays it is closed. However, there may be pre-scheduled private events held during closed hours.

The Department remains vigilant in keeping Stanton clean. This includes disinfecting the gym, meeting rooms, common areas and restrooms. While at Stanton, we ask that you remain 6’ apart from others to maintain physical distancing. Hand sanitizing stations are installed throughout the facility. Masks (face coverings) are not required inside of Annapolis Recreation and Parks facilities but they are strongly encouraged.

Unfortunately, the Dental Clinic remains closed. We hope it will reopen in 2023.

The Stanton Community Center (SCC) has provided its community with a variety of services over the years along with a rich historical background displayed in portraits of Annapolis’ diverse community. SCC features offices, a multi-purpose gymnasium, a commercial kitchen, fitness area, historic classroom, media center with computers, and two conference/meeting rooms. As a community resource for children and adults, SCC provides recreational and cultural enrichment opportunities, health, therapeutic, and counseling services.
