The Douglas County Parks and Recreation Department recently announced that the doors of the Boundary Waters Activity Center are officially open to the public.

The center is located at 4996 Highway / Highway 166. The brand new multi-purpose center located in District 2 is a 30,000 square foot facility, the largest construction project in the SPLOST 2016 program with an investment of over 7.5 millions of dollars.

Last month, a grand ribbon opening ceremony was held to celebrate the eight mega-sports complexes, and citizens of Douglas County attended, according to a county statement.

The program featured several special guests, the Alexander High School Color Guard presented the flags, and the New Manchester High School band performed a variety of musical selections.

There were several speakers, including Douglas County Commissioners, Parks and Recreation Director Gary Dukes, and former US professional basketball player and longtime television analyst for the Atlanta Hawks Mike “Stinger” Glenn guided the program as the emcee.

Since the official opening, the center has been inundated with attendees interested in a plethora of activities, including fitness classes, free basketball and workouts in the fitness zone, according to the county. The establishment also has a team of people who are proud to serve the community.

According to Chad Griffin, Deputy Director of Parks and Recreation, “Over the past few months, the department has seen some impressive changes and additions to its staff. The Recreation Department continues to grow and add new professional staff to its team. Each of them brings a unique talent to the table to improve service and deliver great programs to the Douglas County community.
