According to the Austin Parks and Recreation Department, an official ribbon-cutting event will be held at the park April 4, making the completion of the project.
The center was also officially renamed the George Morales Dove Springs Recreation Center in December, after the change was approved by Austin City Council. Travis County Precinct 4 Constable George Morales III—the center’s new namesake—was raised in Dove Springs and has served as constable since 2016.
The original 18,000-square-foot space included a gymnasium, a weight room, meeting rooms and classroom spaces. According to the city of Austin, the current project broke ground in July 2018. Additions will include a new kitchen, a dance and fitness studio, and a covered porch.
