For months, workers have been busy on the Clifton Recreation Center renovation, and construction is complete. The center’s grand re-opening/ribbon cutting will be Tuesday, January 27 at 10:00 a.m.

Following the re-opening ceremony, the building will remain open until 2:00 p.m. to give visitors the opportunity to see the new facility and grounds.

The regular center hours will be Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. and Fridays, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

CRC’s Clifton Recreation Center received a $1.8 million facelift that included a two-story addition on the parking lot side of the building. The addition is the new entry which faces the parking lot. The addition also has a new front desk and an elevator. The new elevator and renovated restrooms on both levels of the building ensure that all public spaces are now fully accessible and meet ADA standards.

In addition, all utilities (HVAC, plumbing, electric) were renovated or replaced, a new fire sprinkler system was installed and a new audio/visual system was installed in the meeting room.

Clifton Recreation Center is located at 320 McAlpin Avenue (45220) and is one of CRC’s 23 recreation centers throughout the city.

 A groundbreaking “paper tearing” ceremony was held October 29 to mark the beginning of renovations at the Clifton Recreation Center. An artist’s rendering of the new center was transferred to strips of vinyl – thanks to Happen, Inc. – which was weaved into a chain link fence by Clark Montessori students. This was covered with a picture of the existing center which was torn off to reveal the rendering of the new center underneath.

Also part of the ceremony, was the unveiling of a check from Clifton Town Meeting which donated $2200 for new AV equipment at the center.
