Community Recreation Center – Rockland ME

Description

The community center was built in 1935 by the WPA. It is a red brick and granite building with a small playground in the back.

“Our indoor facility is located at 61 Limerock Street in Downtown Rockland, Maine and offers many Youth Programs and Adult Programs. It consists of a lined gym floor for both basketball and volleyball, a new Weight Room, and a game room. The game room, which is located on the lower level, has a concession stand, many table games, arcade games, board games, and a living room with a play station, T.V., and a stereo. There is also an After School Program that operates from the lower level of our facility and a Rental Room on our upper level.”

Extensive renovations were done in 2009.

    There’s a political movement afoot in Rockland to tear this building down.

    That would be a shame. If it’s not already on the historical registry, it should be.

    Reminds me of when they tore down the old granite Post Office to make room for a parking lot.

    This building has been a core place in Rockland since it opened in 1936. Seems to me, it would be less expensive to repair it than tear it down and build a new one. Maybe this time the council will hold the contractors responsible for the repair work they do. Should have lasted longer than ten years.
