Kahle Park Phase II groundbreaking Thursday

Michael Schneider

Hailed by the county parks director as a way to bring the whole family into the recreation experience, ceremonial groundbreaking for Phase II of Kahle Community Center will be celebrated Thursday.

Phase II, which comes at a cost of an estimated $2 million will be next to the Phase I building already constructed, will include a gymnasium with regulation basketball and volleyball courts and an indoor three-lane jogging track.

A weight room will also be incorporated into Phase II.

Already providing a number of youth and adult services to the community, Kahle Park’s new building will have a kids’ game room with fun balls in which kids can jump into and play, a fooseball table and other juvenile recreation activities.

“It’s a place for kids to go if their parents want to work out,” said Scott Morgan, director of community services. He said the whole family can come to the park and each member can find something of interest.

Morgan said the addition to the park will be financed with bonds and those bond sales will be paid with proceeds from the new building, costing the general public nothing. Paid passes will be offered to the public to use the amenities at Kahle.

Although Thursday is the official groundbreaking, Morgan said construction on the building won’t likely begin in earnest until next summer, with county commissioners approving a construction bid by early summer 1999.

Morgan said he hopes the Phase II portion of the project will be completed by fall 2000.

A Phase III building is also planned after Phase II is complete.
