LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – The City of Little Rock Parks and Recreation officials held a ceremony on Friday to break ground on the new West Central Community Center.
"A community center writes a new story each day with lives changed, the smiles shared, the hope given, the spirits lifted, the skills learned, and the friends made," said Bruce Moore, City Manager.
This new 23,000 square foot center will be where the former Rosedale Optimist Club center currently stands.
It will have an indoor multi-use basketball court, locker rooms and concessions area, as well as a game room, fitness room, two multipurpose classrooms for youth programs and one classroom for adult and senior activities.
The projected completion is set for the end of 2015.
