Parks and Recreation Updates

Three Hills Recreation Center
The Three Hills Recreation Center located at 7200 High Ridge in west El Paso is 85% complete and is anticipated to be open by the end of March. The Center, which is almost a mirror image of the Eastwood Recreation Center in east El Paso, will have two gymnasiums, a weight room facility and other amenities that will accommodate the large amount of anticipated attendance on the west side.

The Recreation Center will also have an extensive after school program for area children and the variety of recreation sports leagues. A neighboring park will encircle the huge complex which will have sports fields, playground equipment, along with the future development of skate and dog parks.

Northeast Sports Complex Needs Community's Help
The Northeast Sports Complex located in northeast El Paso is nearing it's scheduled completion in the next few months. However, the grand opening is in jeopardy due to an influx of ATV's in the area that have run rampant over the brand new sodded grass in the area, also endangering the vegetation, irrigation and landscaping.

The Complex, located at 11270 McCombs, will be the first of three sports complexes that will be completed over the next few years. The others will be at Fort Bliss and in West El Paso near Canutillo High School. The Northeast Complex has 4 baseball fields and 3 soccer fields and will be a huge sport attraction upon completion.

If the ATV problem persists, the scheduled opening of the baseball fields in May and the soccer fields in June could be in jeopardy.
