Mesquite’s very popular Recreation Center will close down for annual maintenance on August 27 and re-open, at 5am on September 4. “The majority of the work will be completed by city employees except for specialty contractor who have been hired,” said Recreation Supervisor Nick Montoya. “Floors will be burnished and waxed as needed. Tiles will be steam cleaned by outside contractors and walls touched up where needed with fresh paint. Removable mats will also be steamed clean in the various specialty rooms. Our weight room tread mills will be overhauled and be refurbished and the permanent mats will be scrubbed. The whole process is like a deep spring cleaning, “added Montoya. Opened in 1999, the center has experienced a lot of use since then and still looks quite good. In 2002 approximately 37,500 individuals swiped their pass cards or used day passes to use the facilities. The daily use of the facility has increased substantially with the cities growth. In 2011, over 106,000 residents or guests enjoyed recreating in the facilities. Users enjoy, Zumba and country dance lessons, martial arts training, gymnastics, fitness training, swimming and many other classes for youth and young at heart members of our community. There are daily, weekly, monthly, semi-annual and annual passes available for residents and non-residents of Clark County. Montoya said,” The outdoor pool area will be open during the maintenance on September 1 from 10am to 4pm and Monday September 3 from10am to 4pm. I want to remind pool users to park at the Senior Center. We apologize for the inconvenience this shut down may cause, but these scheduled maintenance items must be done to provide and maintain a quality and safe environment for our patrons.”
