Hi-Tech Upgrades coming to Rosa Jackson Recreation Center

MACON, Georgia(41NBC/WMGT)-Macon-Bibb County Parks and Recreation is laying the ground work for more major upgrades on Rosa Jackson Recreation Center.

In addition to a new and more modern infrastructure for the old rec center, the goal this round of renovations is keeping up with the times and adding a computer lab.

“The renovations are needed. Those centers were built anywhere between the 80s and 90s and as we know, sports centers have evolved, buildings and facilities have evolved so we need to catch up with technology,” said Senior Recreations Operation Manager Robert Walker.
Other upgrades community members can look forward to include: a new gymnasium, a weight room, new lobby and entrance area as well as meeting spaces to name a few.

“Before we closed it, it had a high volume of renovations…a high volume of basketball leagues, several community leagues, an after school program and different community events that were hosted there.”

With constant usage by community members, Rosa Jackson Recreation Center has established itself as the heart of many community involved give backs and activities. Its reopening in mid January, according to Walker is expected to be greatly anticipated.
