Lewisville’s Frederick P. Herring Parks and Recreation Center recently received $5 million in renovations. The building now houses the Lewisville Parks and Recreation Department’s administration offices. The department was previously located at the nearby Lewisville Municipal Annex.

“We’re really excited to finally have a permanent home,” Parks and Recreation Director Stacie Anaya said. “It makes it easy for residents to find us.”

The 6,700-square-foot facility is located at 191 Civic Circle. It served as the primary source for the community’s recreation and gymnasium needs for decades, according to the city. It features two rentable basketball courts and multiple racquetball courts. It will also feature a backup generator so the facility can be used as a shelter during emergency situations.

Other project highlights include Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant restroom upgrades, new flooring, a public conference room, and modernized front entry and building facade enhancements.

Design of the facility renovations, which included input from Lewisville’s parks and recreation staff, was completed in 2021. Renovation work began in early 2022. The remodel supports the “Diverse and Thriving Neighborhoods” Big Move in the Lewisville 2025 vision plan.

The parks and recreation department will host an open house for the public on March 31 at 10 a.m. The event will feature tours of the facility and prize giveaways. Local officials and community leaders will also be in attendance.
