New Albany recreation community center opens

February 27, 2003

Albany -- For the first time in 23 years, the Albany Recreation Department opens a new facility. The Lockett Station Community Center is now open. It is the gym of the Robert Cross Middle School.

 After school, on weekends, and in the summer the Center will be open for basketball, other sports events, and senior citizen activities. The double use of the school by the recreation department will save the city 750-thousand dollars.

Albany Recreation Department Director Kenneth Williams said "Both enteties have the opportunity to invest in the same building. Therefore spending less dollars. So it is a good venture."

 Williams said the city hopes to use other school gyms and property for recreation centers. The Radium Middle School is one under consideration.
