The refurbished center includes a new, 2,800-square-foot cardio and weight room addition, overlooking Harrington Park. The center’s famed Gazebo Café has also received an extensive facelift with more dining space and a reconfigured kitchen, which will allow staff and volunteers to better serve patrons.
Other project amenities include:
• New fitness class space
• Additional classroom space for classes, seminars, meetings, etc.
• Additional parking and restrooms
• Expanded area for the Wellness Center for Older Adults
