Groundbreaking for new rec center this Saturday

Friday, July 20, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

This weekend, all of Austin is invited to the groundbreaking for the new Montopolis Recreation and Community Center. Not only will ground be broken, as a city press release reports, but the public will also have a chance to see a photography exhibit by Rene Renteria and help select which images will become part of the new center. Speakers will include U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, Mayor Steve Adler and District 3 Council Member Pio Renteria. The new center will include youth development programs, a gym, a boxing and fitness room, and health education. Construction is slated to continue through spring 2020. The groundbreaking will take place Saturday, July 21, at 9 a.m. at the current recreation center, which is located at 1200 Montopolis Drive.
