New and improved rec center to open soon

The spruced-up Saddlebrook Recreation Center in The Villages is expected to be unveiled this summer. Saddlebrook, 3010 Saddlebrook Lane, is one of the older recreation centers in the community, and this year received a complete renovation. The interior, including a reconfigured lobby, plus the addition of a larger billiards room with more tables and a unisex restroom were updated. New mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems were installed, along with new flooring, furniture, and fixtures. Exterior work included new windows and trim work, and a new pool shade structure. The $1.6 million project began in January and will be completed on schedule, according to status reports from Villages district staff.
