The Douglass Recreation Center will be located at the intersection of 10th Street and Fort Riley Boulevard in Douglass Park. The new facility will include a high-school regulation basketball court, two NCAA-size volleyball courts, 2 pickleball courts, a community room, a fitness room, and an elevated three-lane walking track.
The building program and amenities were influenced by input from community members and the Douglass Center Advisory Board over a period of several years.
Construction of the Douglass Recreation Center began in March 2020. The new facility is expected to open by December 2020.
Manhattan Parks and Recreation will continue to offer programming in the existing Douglass Center building and the Douglass Center Annex.
