The newly renovated Milo-Grogan Recreation Center officially reopened today at a dedication ceremony that involved community residents and civic leaders. The former 9,500 square foot building was constructed in 1976 and was the smallest recreation center in Columbus. The new expanded facility is 16,000 square feet and includes a new gym, art room, dance studio, fitness room, and game room as well as a new parking lot and air conditioning system.

“This is now a recreation center that can meet the needs of the residents of the wonderful Milo-Grogan community,” said Mayor Coleman at today’s ceremony. “It is thanks to the wisdom of our voters and the fiscally responsible practices of our administration that we are able to make these investments.”

The renovations total cost was $3.5 million, and funded through the capital improvement budget, funded by voter approved bond packages. The new center was designed by Moody Nolan Architects.

“Our recreation centers play an important role in building strong, healthy communities,” added Councilmember Klein. “The improved Milo-Grogan center will make a positive impact on the lives of Columbus families for years to come.”
