The Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation and Conservation Department will celebrate the special groundbreaking for a new neighborhood gymnasium at 10 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 7 at 15550 Spring Pine Drive in Tampa.
The new County facility will feature a full-size basketball court, kitchen facility and other amenities.
Along with existing programs for all age groups, the County will expand offerings for indoor adult and youth athletic leagues, tournaments and other events to be held at the new gymnasium. Construction is expected to be completed by early 2015.
