Twin Falls Rec Center Still On Wish List
Even in these tougher economic times there is still a group working on the possibility of someday building a community recreation center in Twin Falls. The Times News reports that plans are taking shape for that to become a reality sometime in the future. The Twin Falls Recreation Center Committee met Tuesday to talk about the project. Visions right now include an estimated cost of around $5.5 million dollars for a facility of over 55,000-square feet. The center could provide a place for basketball and volleyball leagues and a place for the public to use batting cages, a climbing wall, and elevated running track surrounding four basketball courts. The biggest challenge right now is finding a way to pay for it. That could be accomplished by a bond approved by voters or the formation of a recreation district with taxing authority. This is not something that will happen soon though but the committee members are hopeful something may happen down the road. There is a proposed location for the center, if it should happen, located just east of the current Parks and Recreation offices on Maxwell Ave.
