After several months of anticipation, the Farmers Branch Community Recreation Center is excited to announce the completion of its first-floor renovation. Among the upgrades, the Rec Center now has a 9,100 square foot fitness area filled with industry-leading equipment from CommFit and TechnoGym.
The fitness area includes a 765 square foot indoor turf area. Improvements were also made to the Magnolia and Community Rooms including updates to flooring, finishes, and AC equipment. These rooms are great options for party and meeting rentals.
The updated Kids Zone is now 1,100 square feet of bright and colorful play structures and a decorative mural. Best of all, the Kids Zone is a safe and supervised play place for children ages six months to seven years to be dropped off while parents are working out at the Recreation or Aquatics Centers. Appointments are required, and it is only $2 per hour.

This requirement will stay in place until June 30, at which point Council will review the policy again.
