Important information about the front entrance to Joe W. Brown Park

Due to structural safety concerns, the bridge just before the rec center is closed to vehicular traffic until further notice.  People on foot may use the bridge during the repair period, unless otherwise noted. The parking lots across from the tennis center are available since as they are located before the bridge. To access the recreation center, pool, Victory Track, Victory Field Stadium, and Spartan Field, please use the back entrance on Read Blvd, just before Dwyer Road.  

Help Keep NORDC Facilities Beautiful:  If you see anything at our playgrounds and rec centers that requires attention, please contact 311 or email  Thank you for helping us to keep our playgrounds and rec centers well maintained!
