Preview First Responders Recreation

This month John Rohan, Director of Recreation and Parks for The Villages Community Development District, (VCDD) gave us a sneak peek of the First Responders Recreation Center, that is currently in the last few phases of construction and looking to open this summer.

As a result of the collaboration between The Villages Community Development District, the Amenity Authority Council, The Villages Design Team and fellow Villagers, First Responders Recreation brings another wonderful combination of features. This includes long time popular favorites, new trending amenities, and a few that are all-new to The Villages.

Like Eisenhower Recreation, First Responders is a tribute to the many men and women who have dedicated their lives to public safety agencies, where the walls and hallways will be decorated with the memorabilia and stories of loved ones.

First Responders Recreation Center is in the Mulberry Grove Region near the northernmost areas of The Villages. Access to this center will be available by car from County Road 42, and by golf car only from SE 79th Clearview Avenue in The Village of Chatham.
