WEST MONROE, La. (AP) - After eight months of major renovations, the West Monroe Sports Complex is expected to re-open March 4 with a new look, new programs and a new name.
West Monroe Parks and Recreation Director Doug Seegers says the city of West Monroe spent about $700,000 to completely remodel the recreation center with major overhauls inside and additional aesthetic features outside.
The facility is more than 40 years old.
Renovations include new roof, new insulation, new exterior faÃ§ade, new brickwork, new heating and cooling system, new electrical wiring and lights, and new basketball court, score boards and bleachers.
The new basketball court is a Sport Court flooring used in Olympic facilities across the country.
The center will be renamed The Rec at Seventh Square.
