    'Recreation center', commonly used in BrE?

    Hi,

    May I know if this term is commonly used in BrE as well? How about 'Leisure Centre'? Thanks a lot. (For one thing, the differences in the spelling of 'centre' made me think that way.)



    Best!

    "Leisure Centre" is common in BrE. I've never seen "Recreation Center". (The spelling "center" is wrong in BrE.
