The Community Recreation Center at Douglass Park Plans and Development
The Community Recreation Center at Douglass Park has been proposed as a $3.4 million facility at the intersection of 10th Street and Fort Riley Boulevard at Douglass Park. It would house a basketball court, indoor walking track, and other amenities. The City of Manhattan has been approved for a Section 108 guaranteed loan to fund construction of the facility, with debt service payments to be made with part of the city's annual Community Development Block Grant allocation. The application is currently approved by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
We will be working with the community and an advisory panel in selecting a final design concept for the Center.
The public is invited February 13, at 4:30 p.m. to a public open house to provide comments and feedback. A formal presentation of the concepts will be presented at the City Commission work session at 5:30 p.m. following the open house.
The planning of this center was encompassed by an overall Facility Feasibility Plan developed by the community and Parks and Recreation. To learn more about the prior planning please visit Facility Feasibility Plan page.
Following the Recreation Open House all future documents and concepts will be shared on this page.
