Senter Park Recreation Center to Receive Interior, Exterior Improvements Through CDBG Funds

Senter-Park-Rec-Center

Senter Park Recreation Center, the city’s oldest, largest and most frequented recreation center, has been operational since 1954.

Throughout its lifespan, the facility, which is located at 901 S. Senter Road, has seen renovations in the 1970s and 1990s. Currently, Senter Park Recreation Center is in the process of a three-phase project to improve the interior and exterior grounds of the facility. The renovations are aimed at improving the patron and employee user experience.

The project is made possible through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding, which is provided to the City of Irving from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. CDBG funds are used in Irving to help improve the quality of life for lower income residents. In 2017, phase one improvements began on the Senter Park playground, tennis court, fencing and drainage.

In March, phase two of the construction began. This phase includes replacement of the Senter Park gymnasium and pool roofs, and an upgrade of the outside marquee sign to a modern, digital monument sign. Also, the parking lot light poles will receive LED lighting updates and a fresh coat of black paint.

In the fall, phase three of the construction is slated to begin. This significant renovation of the interior will include relocating the fitness and weight room from the first floor to the second floor. The new workout area will provide added space and natural light for patrons. The area also will include new locker room and restroom facilities. On the first floor, crews will renovate the current exercise room into an activity room space and update the first level restrooms to meet Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.

The main reception area will be updated to provide an open and inviting space. Offices for staff will be reconfigured in place of the current Sports Hall of Fame, and the athletic memorabilia will be relocated and showcased within the upcoming Irving Museum and Archives facility. In addition, a television lounge will be constructed on the first floor.

The Senter Park Recreation Center project is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2019. For more information on Senter Park, visit CityofIrving.org/Senter.
