The Adorni Memorial Recreation Center is located at 1011 Waterfront Drive in Eureka, California. It was made possible by a generous bequest from the late Harry J. Adorni to the City. Often locals refer to it as "The Adorni." This multi-use public recreation center, situated on the waterfront on Humboldt Bay, commemorates Harry Adorni's deep affection for his beloved "North of Fourth" neighborhood.
"When I check out, I want to leave a smile on everyone's face."
