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. 

The Joe W. Brown Victory Gym is closed for court maintenance. The work began on March 16 and is anticipated to take between two and four weeks. The rest of the rec center is open, including the practice gym and activity rooms. For activities at Joe W. Brown Rec Center, please click here.
