Last December, Liberty Recreation Center officially shut its doors for a renovation project. After almost 11 months, Plano’s beloved rec center is nearly ready to re-open. Renovations to Liberty Recreation Center include updated locker rooms and restrooms, a new entrance to the pool, an enhanced and expanded fitness area, pool area improvements and updates to the entire recreation center and grounds.
The biggest change to Liberty Recreation Center comes in the form of the outdoor fitness center. The new outdoor fitness center is a covered area with weights, benches and dumbells, suitable for more modern outdoor work out classes.
Members and guests of Liberty Recreation Center will also be able to access the pool via a new entrance. The pool has also been improved to add a zipline, a volleyball court and plastic lily pad replicas for young swimmers to walk across.
Workout areas have been expanded and enhanced to include more modern machinery. The member check-in desk and the workout areas have been relocated to opposite sides of those of their spots in the original recreation center.
The improvements to Liberty Recreation Center come following Plano City Council’s approval of a $5.3 million expenditure for the recreation center’s renovations.
Liberty Recreation Center will re-open Saturday, October 26 at 10:00 a.m. with a grand opening celebration and a ribbon-cutting ceremony. For information on memberships within Plano Parks and Recreation, visit here.
