Groundbreaking occurred Sept. 9, 2000 for the Alan J. Stone Center for Recreation. The Center opened in September 2001, with a dedication ceremony on Sept. 28, 2001.
The 53,000-square-foot facility offers four basketball, volleyball and/or tennis courts on the main level with options for roller hockey, inline skating and indoor soccer.
A suspended three-lane track rims the facility; eight track laps equals one mile on the inside lane and seven laps equals one mile on the outside lane.
The fitness room houses 26 cardiovascular machines: eight treadmills, nine stationary bikes, five stair climbers, three elliptical trainers, one rowing machine, and a variety of weight machines and free weights.
A 600-square-foot climbing wall featuring eight belay stations and lead climbing ropes make up most of the Center’s west wall.
The facility’s 1,750-square-foot multi-purpose room is used for aerobics, dance, fencing and martial arts classes.
Shower and locker facilities are also available for use in the Stone Center.
