Pardon our dust while the War Memorial Youth Center is undergoing several improvements as part of an extensive capital improvement program. The City is renovating the basketball courts, repairing all iron gates, wire mesh and bleachers in the field complex, installing a new field irrigation system, and re-grading and re-sodding of the athletic field surface. Work is expected to be completed by the end of October.
Work began this summer for the first phase of $1.2 million worth of improvements at the War Memorial Youth Center. Further projects planned for the Youth Center within the next year will consist of the replacement of the outdoor and indoor playgrounds, extensive repair of the Youth Center facility roof, equipment improvements for the gymnastics center as well as improvements to the theater and the interior courtyard.
We apologize for the inconvenience to all participants. Once all the work is completed, the newly renovated War Memorial Youth Center will become a facility that our residents and participants can be proud of. If you have any additional questions or information, please call Parks and Recreation Department at 305-460-5620.
