"New Hennequet Rec Center" is a Stronghold in Saints Row 2.

Rec Center hides den of debauchery
Stilwater Gazette newspaper headline[1]


Pierce phones Playa and briefs them on an illegal underground casino having been set up by Kazuo Akuji, located at the Marshall Winslow Recreation Center. Playa heads there and meets a fellow 3rd Street Saints gang member in the lobby, and together they destroy The Ronin's gambling operation and stop The Ronin reinforcements.


The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.
Upon completion of the Stronghold, it is available in-game at Newspaper Clipboards.

The legacy of Marshall Winslow has been sullied as an underground casino has been found underneath a rec center baring the former mayor's name. Police are reporting that the Ronin have been operating a gambling ring out of the rec center ever since the siege at Poseidon's Palace.

  • New Hennequet neighborhood unlocked


  • The 3rd Street Saints gang member who meets Playa at the Rec Center greets them in a male voice, even if they have a female character model.
    • This gang member spawns outside the rec center after either failing or completing the Stronghold and can be recruited back. He cannot turn hostile if shot, and he doesn't react to taunts.
  • Two Zeniths and eight Shards appear near the house south of Rec Center after "Take the elevator back to the first floor" objective is completed, although these vehicles do not play any role in the Stronghold.[2]
  • The Ronin soldier defending the last few cash boxes and almost all of The Ronin reinforcements use AR200 SAWs. The other mission where enemies use the SAW is "Waste Not Want Not" where the enemies use this weapon inside Oppressors.
  • Destroyed cash boxes drop around $500, and are present before and after the Stronghold, including the very beginning of the game.


After Akuji touched down state side he decided he was gonna reopen the Ronin's gambling operations. We don't gotta worry about the cops bein' on our ass for bustin' up their operation this time... their casino is hidden in the basement of the Marshall Winslow Rec Center. One of my boys has been stakin' the place out, he'll tell you how to get to the casino. Once you're inside you should have no problem tearin' that place up.
