Heights Recreation Center will be open regular hours through Saturday, Dec. 15. After that date, the nearly 50-year-old facility will be closed and soon demolished as part of a project to construct a new facility, which is expected to open next to the old location in May 2013.
During the closure, Heights Recreation Center classes and programs will be held at Huffhines Recreation Center, the Richardson Senior Center and the new Gymnastics Center, which will open in January 2013. Stay posted on all changes through the City’s website at www.cor.net/parks.
Heights Recreation Center’s new facility will include a high school regulation-sized basketball court, larger fitness and cardio areas, updated locker rooms, larger classroom space and much more. The $11.8 million project is funded through the 2010 Bond Program.
