WPR Recreation Center


Please join us at the groundbreaking for the new WPR Recreation Center at our main campus on Tuesday, April 5 at 2:00 pm. We are excited to celebrate the start of construction. 

Impact of Construction

During the twelve month construction period, our campus will see several impacts. Parking lots, road ways, and sidewalks will have changes and improvements. This will make the campus easier to navigate and more accessible. Unfortunately during construction, some areas will be closed off and parking will be limited. The new recreation center and campus roadway improvements will allow us to better serve the community needs in the future. We apologize for the temporary inconvenience.
We invite you to visit our Facility Expansion webpage for the most up to date information on the new recreation center.
