Vare Recreation Center

A Rebuild project


Vare Recreation Center is a 3.6-acre site that hosts a mix of youth and young adult activities. It features:

  • A playground.
  • A pool.
  • Sports fields.
  • Basketball courts.
  • Two gymnasiums, including one for basketball and one for the gymnastics program.

The site's four-room building has a public computing center, teen center, arcade, and fitness room. Due to structural instability, its second floor has been shut down, limiting the programs available at the site.

Through Rebuild, Make The World Better will address the building's structural instability. It will also completely renovate and modernize the structure.


In May 2019, a community kickoff event was held. The community engagement phase will begin during the spring and summer of 2019.
