LDJ Community Center

The Larry D. Johnson Community Center opened its doors to the public in 2007. The center is named after fallen police officer Larry D. Johnson, who lost his life in the line of duty in 1995. Construction on phase one of the $4.5 million project began in June 2006. Two additional phases will be built when the funds become available.

The facility features a modern design with plenty of natural light. It houses the Mt. Rose Fitness Center, a dance/aerobic room, two multi-purpose rooms, and The Club, a 1,900 square foot teen drop-in center.

Watch for details on upcoming recreational programs, arts/crafts and other activities available for people of all ages and abilities!
