New Gymnasium Floor is “Heart of the RecPlex” – Grand Reopening, April 3, 10:30am

Calling it the “Heart of the RecPlex” Parks Director, Cindy Shook, said the gymnasium is an important part of the community, “It’s where families gather to watch their kids play, people of all ages meet to exercise, and where the serious, and the not-so-serious, players compete.” Shook says she’ll have the Pickleball Club in attendance at the event to celebrate with paddles in hand. “We are excited to welcome the community back in!” said Shook.
