WPR Recreation Center

                The WPR Recreation Center is scheduled to be complete June of 2023 and opened to the community in July 2023.  In collaboration with Architects LKA Partners, Nunn construction, and the WPR staff, the recreation center and campus improvements was designed and built to meet the needs of the community.

                The campus improvements included expansion of current parking lots, roadway changes, and on-site storm water improvements. The new recreation center is approximately 65,000 square foot. The first floor includes a gymnasium containing three full-size basketball courts and a suspended walking track around the interior perimeter; two community meeting rooms with a kitchen; a children's center with three classrooms, administration offices, and men’s and women’s locker rooms. A second floor fitness area includes two group fitness rooms, outdoor exercise patio, cardio, fitness and weights areas. Once additional funding is secured, a future phase will convert the first floor general storage to family changing rooms and add a 14,000 square foot of space for lap and recreation pools.


The estimated cost cost for design, construction, and furnishings was $23.7 million.

  • $19 million in certificates of participation (COPs) bonding
  • $4.7 million from the Widefield Parks and Recreation general fund

The debt service to pay back the COPs will be paid from:

  • Annual $1 million general fund transfer
