“Our first conversations about developing a recreation center began in 2020. Hats off to the Foundation Board for pursuing this vision despite the many challenges presented by the pandemic,” Landry said in a statement. “Our Board of Directors, our staff and our generous donors have worked together to make this facility a reality. We all look forward to welcoming the community and are doing everything in our power to ensure that the PATH Recreation & Fitness Center meets the needs of our community.
