While I’ve been following the construction at Park View Recreation closely, I didn’t want to neglect the great work that is going on at the nearby Raymond Recreation Center (915 Spring Road, NW). Ground was broken on a replacement for the old Raymond Recreation back in November 2011. The new rec center is being constructed as an addition to the rear of the Raymond Elementary School  with the recreation entrance off of 10th Street.

According to DPR, the new recreation center will contain features that include:

  • Indoor gymnasium
  • Computer lab
  • Game room
  • Fitness room
  • Multipurpose rooms
  • Locker rooms
  • Offices

The project is also planned to  include exterior improvements, such as new play equipment and landscaping. Originally the project was schedule to be completed by the winter of 2012. Based on the state of construction, it looks like it very well could be completed and open by the end of this winter.

    Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Spending some time and actual effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot
    and never seem to get anything done.
