The Breckenridge Recreation Center is undergoing an exciting renovation that began in April 2017. The project includes the construction of a new tennis center covering two of the existing outdoor courts. The current indoor courts will become two levels of cardio/ fitness space featuring a new cardio area, fitness studios and an indoor turf gym. Project completion is scheduled for April 2018.
Please note all dates, schedules and plans are tentative and subject to change.
This week -- outdoor basketball courts, indoor tennis courts; outdoor tennis courts, noise from tennis court demolition.
The project adds approximately 11,000 square feet of recreation space and triples the fitness square footage. The current indoor tennis courts become a new, two-story fitness space. A new 2,800 square foot youth wing moves into the current weight room, including a year-round indoor playground, Bearly Big Child Care, and dedicated youth program and activity space. The indoor tennis courts will be replaced by a 17,500 square-foot stand-alone indoor Tennis Center built over two of the current outdoor hard courts, adjacent to the Recreation Center.
