New Arcola Lakes Park Senior Center to start construction

Arcola Lakes Park, 1301 NW 83 Street, will soon be home to the largest senior recreation center in Miami-Dade County. The 22,000 square foot center will feature state-of-the-art amenities.

Construction on the new Senior Center will begin in July, 2012 and is expected to take a year to complete.

Seniors will be able to enjoy entertainment rooms with flat screen televisions, an arts and crafts room, and a room to create ceramics.  An exercise room equipped with the latest fitness equipment will be available for seniors looking to stay fit and active.

Thinking of taking a swim on a hot afternoon? Seniors will be able to enjoy a pool, spa and locker rooms for men and women.

Once complete the multi-purpose facility will also include such amenities as a dining hall for special events and a warming kitchen. 

“The seniors of our community deserve the very best amenities and that is what this new Senior Center will deliver,” said Commissioner Jean Monestime. “This will be a crowning jewel in the County’s parks system.”

The project will be funded using Building Better Communities General Obligation Bond funds.
