Thrive groundbreaking set for July 20
Lewisville Parks and Recreation Department will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for Thrive, the city’s new multi-generational recreation center, on Friday, July 20, 10 a.m., outside Memorial Park Recreation Center, 1950 S. Valley Parkway.
The 87,000-square-foot, $46 million facility will be built on the property where the Senior Activity Center and Memorial Park Recreation Center currently sit, replacing both buildings. Construction is expected to begin in August and the facility is expected to open in 2020.
A new recreation center was a top recommendation in the Lewisville 2025 vision plan, and one of the main components of a bond package passed by Lewisville voters in November 2015. It will include an indoor natatorium, a gymnasium, an indoor walking track, an expanded fitness area, community rooms, and an indoor playground for children. The facility also will feature a public art component being created by Andrew Dufford.
During construction, Memorial Park Recreation Center activities will transfer to the Frederick P. Herring Recreation Center, 191 Civic Circle. Senior activities scheduled through July 20 will be held in the Glenmore Savage Community Room at the Municipal Annex, 1197 W. Main Street. A temporary senior activities center will open July 23 at Music City Mall.
