LONGVIEW, Texas – Editor’s Note: Video above from November 2019.

After the Broughton Leisure Center closed in June for major renovations, work is continuing on time and on budget, according to Longview Parks and Recreation Manager Scott Caron.

Renovations include work at the entrance, construction of an additional gymnasium, additional parking and updates to current facilities. Broughton Park will have an extended trail, improved basketball courts and a plaza to host outdoor events.

“It’s about 60% complete at this point,” Caron said of the $5.7 million project that is part of the voter-approved 2018 bond package. “RLM (general contractors) are making great progress and we expect them to complete construction in late summer/early fall. After that, we will have time to move furniture, fixtures and equipment.
