Stoddert Rec Center

The Stoddert Recreation Center construction finally has begun after much planning and debate. Sadly, the entire field has been fenced in, the baseball diamond demolished, and some big old oaks threatened. Neighbors look forward to the completion of this long-term project and the restoration of some green space to congregate.

There has been an ongoing informal debate between those who support the rec center and what they see as great value to the neighborhood, and those who feel it will cause congestion, destroy the park and come at a great expense for the benefit of a small number of people. There are valid arguments to both sides, but once the construction is done it will be an attractive addition to the neighborhood.
