Lower Valley gets $11 million recreation center

They say the new center will have a gymnasium, cardio weights room, game space, multi-purpose fitness space, a public library, a multi-purpose community room, and an outdoor amphitheater.

El Paso city leaders are launching construction for an $11 million community recreation center Thursday morning.

The center will be located on Alameda Avenue just past Ascarate Park and about one mile from Riverside High School.

It’ll hold an exercise space, game space, and an educational space for the Borderland community.

The architect designing the center released renderings on their website, which can be seen in this story’s gallery.

They say the new center will have a gymnasium, cardio weights room, game space, multi-purpose fitness space, a public library, a multi-purpose community room, and an outdoor amphitheater.

The architect’s website says the design is inspired by the desert flowers found around the Borderland.

The $11 million center is paid for from the 2012 Quality of Life Bond.

The architect’s website says there will also be a free-standing sculpture outside of the center that shows the cultural heritage of El Paso.

The public is invited to watch the city leaders and construction crews break ground at 7380 Alameda Ave. at 10 a.m. Thursday.
