Groundbreaking Ceremony at Fred Roberts Recreation Center

Los Angeles - The Department of Recreation and Parks joined Councilwoman Jan Perry (9th District) and local residents to celebrate the start of construction on a new and much-needed recreation center at Fred Roberts in South Los Angeles on Thursday, July 9, 2009.

The existing recreation center no longer fills the needs of the local growing community. More space and diversity is needed and the new center will provide just that to its residents. The building is designed to provide movement and excitement with angular elevations and an innovative floor plan.

Features to the recreation center will include a regulation sized gymnasium, office space for staff and ADA complaint restrooms. The main building, which will function as the recreation center will be approximately 9,200-square feet and will be used mainly for athletics such as basketball, volleyball and other court activities. There will be another smaller 2,400-square-foot building, which will be used for child care and community services, attached to the main building.

The project is expected to be complete in Fall of 2010. Fred Roberts Recreation Center is located at 4700 South Honduras Street, Los Angeles 90011. For more information on this project or the Department, please visit our website at http://www.laparks.org/ or call (213) 202-2700.
