Popular Hamilton Park Recreation Center Reopens After Undergoing Restorations
Reopening of Willie B. Johnson Recreation Center.
Willie B. Johnson Recreation Center now features a fresh, modern interior and exterior. Renovations added an additional 22,000 to the existing building. New amenities include touch-free restrooms, a dedicated wing for senior adults, multi-generational technology center, expanded parking, and paved walking trail. The center's outdoor pavilion, popular with the community because of its regulation basketball court - was transformed into a 12,000 Square-foot indoor gymnasium.
The $8.8 million renovation was funded with monies from the 2017 bond program.
The recreation center honors the Hamilton Park resident who improved the sports and recreation opportunities for community youth.
