Lockers and Changing Rooms

We have men’s, women’s, and all-gender locker rooms available in the downstairs area of the AOERC.

Lockers and changing areas are available on a limited basis and will follow appropriate state and county guidelines regarding capacity, showers, restrooms, and use of lockers.  In general, we suggest bringing the fewest items necessary and not relying on locker access regularly. We strongly encourage patrons to refrain from bringing valuables and to keep a watchful eye on their personal items

In addition to the quarterly/annual lockers, the facility also houses day use lockers which require you to bring your own lock. Day use lockers are free of charge, and please note they will be cleared out each night at the close of business and any left behind contents will be added to the lost and found.
