LEESBURG, FL – The ribbon cutting ceremony for Leesburg’s new Teen Enrichment Center is set for Wednesday, June 8 at 10:00am. The facility is part of the Leesburg Recreation Complex located at 1851 Griffin Road.
Encompassing 10,045 square feet, the center was built as a partnership between the city and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Florida. It will provide local youth and teens with a safe place to go every day after school and during the summer months. The facility includes multipurpose rooms to accommodate recreational, educational and enrichment programs for elementary, middle and high school students. There are also separate outdoor areas for youth and teens.
The project was made possible through funding from the city of Leesburg, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Florida and a Lake County Community Development Block Grant, totaling an investment in the community of $2.75 million. The facility was designed by CPH Engineering and was built by Evergreen Construction.
The public is invited to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony. For more information, call the Recreation and Parks Office at 352-728-9885.
