Council discusses $5 million renovation and approves increased parks-and-recreation fees
Burleson Parks and Recreation director Jen Basham presented to the council a $5.5 million Burleson Recreation Center (BRiCk) lobby-renovation proposal.
The renovation would include removing the rock-climbing boulder and using the space for a lounge and seating area, adding a play-feature for children, new flooring and paint for the lobby and meeting, pool-party and family-changing rooms, enclosing and relocating the front desk to the center of the lobby, enclosing the point-of-sale desk and creating additional storage-space.
Parks and Recreation plans to remove the boulder because it’s often used as a waiting area and not for rock-climbing because it’s too small for adults and too tall for children, making it “the perfect height to accomplish not a lot,” Basham said. Basham added that people hide behind the boulder to sneak into the BRiCk.
The renovation would begin in November and is estimated to take three months to complete.
The council also approved increasing the BRiCk’s fees and other park fees.
