The Boys & Girls Clubs of Elko is committed to bringing a Recreation/Aquatic
Center and an Events Center to Elko to serve all Elko County residents. The new
Recreation Center will include an indoor competition swimming pool, outdoor
aquatic complex, gymnasium, full service kitchen/concessions, multi-purpose
space, youth rooms, game room, and fitness center. The Events Center will be
approximately 70,000 square feet with 6,500 seating capacity. The new Events
Center will be the headquarters for major concerts, sporting events,
equestrian/rodeo productions, and several other event style offerings. The City
Council voted unanimously to commit the Herrera and Kump fields as the location
for these new projects.
The Boys & Girls Club has put the development of this project into full gear and
has entered into an agreement with Myers Anderson Architects for design and
with Michael Clay Corporation to build the new projects. Community meetings
will now be held to allow every individual the opportunity to give input on exactly
what amenities should be included.
The new Centers will be available to the entire community and individuals are not
required to be Boys & Girls Club members to attend the facilities, events, or
programs. The Boys & Girls Club will make these accessible to all regardless of
ability to pay.
The case is set and the time is now. Joining the Boys & Girls Club efforts and help
bring this generational project to Elko County.
