Community Center Gym is closed for renovation project (Posted 4/11/17)
The Ossining Recreation & Parks Department is pleased to announce the gymnasium improvement project at the Joseph G. Caputo Community Center is underway. The project will include the removal of the existing gym floor, the installation of new “Omnisports 6.5” sports flooring system and installation of new gym wall pads. This project is scheduled to be completed over a 5 week period, and will require a closure of the gymnasium during that time. Any programs affected by the closure have either been relocated to an appropriate program space, or will temporarily be suspended until the gym reopens. All other Community Center and Aquatics Center programs and operations will continue as scheduled.
The Ossining Recreation & Parks Department appreciates the community’s patience during this project. The Village Board of Trustees, as well as the Village Administration and Recreation & Parks Department Staff are looking forward to the “finished product”...one we are confident will result in an attractive, high quality, multi-use gym facility for many years to come!
