City awards construction contract for west Huntsville recreation center

Published on May 23, 2024

A new recreation center planned for west Huntsville moved forward as the City awarded the construction contract to Chorba Contracting Corporation.

Chorba submitted a bid of $7,497,058 for the construction of the one-story, 27,350-square-foot facility located on Martin Road just west of Zierdt Road.

The recreation center is similar in design to the Mark Russell Recreation Center on Taylor Road. It will feature a gymnasium with two basketball courts, two volleyball courts and related facilities. Sitework will also include exterior pickleball courts and landscaping.

Construction is expected to take a year.

The new facility will raise the number of recreational and community centers to 15 throughout the City, complementing more than 65 public parks.

“We’re very excited to move forward with this project and see construction begin soon,” said Parks & Recreation Director James Gossett. “This facility will be a great addition for the City, particularly as west Huntsville continues to see so much residential growth.”
