Public Meeting for Potential Center

The City of Visalia Parks and Recreation Department invites the public to attend the second in a series of public outreach meetings to discuss the conceptual South Side Community Center on Thursday, December 7th at 6 p.m. at the Whitendale Community Center, located at 630 W. Beech Avenue.

Several years ago, the City of Visalia designated a 9 acre parcel of land at the corner of County Center and Visalia Parkway (next to the Police Substation) to be used as a potential South Side Community Center.

The current vision is to design a new multi-generational facility that would serve all ages. Senior and tot programs could be offered during the daytime hours while school is in session; local youth would utilize the facility for after school programs and, evenings would be utilized for enrichment classes and organized sports programs for both adults and children.

 “Although the prospective facility is conceptual at this time, it’s exciting to think about expanding our reach to the south side of the community, said Jeannie Greenwood, Visalia Parks and Recreation Director.  “Our goal is to work together to bring ideas to the table that include what the potential facility will look like and what potential programs and amenities could be offered to the community.”

Visalia citizens are encouraged to attend this public outreach meeting and share their ideas and interests for the conceptual community center.
