The public is invited to a 10th anniversary celebration for the "F" Street Community Center, 1225 "F" Street, from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 29. The free family event will feature activities and refreshments.
The original building at the location was opened as a fire station in 1929. It was converted for use as a 4,000-square-foot community center in 1965. Renovation work on the center began in 2000, and the new 34,000-square-foot center opened to the public in 2002. It serves the Near South, Everett, South Salt Creek and Downtown neighborhoods. The center has indoor and outdoor basketball courts, an outdoor playground, game tables, video games, computer and television rooms and indoor track and fitness areas as well as rooms for meetings and classes.
"Over the last decade, the "F" Street Center has met the social and recreational needs of thousands of area residents of all ages," said Center Director Dorothy Skorupa. "This is an important gathering place and a source of pride for this area of our community."
Regular hours at the "F" Street Community Center are 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and 1 to 6 p.m. on Sundays. More information is available at parks.lincoln.ne.gov.
