The Carson Valley has welcomed a new edition to our community resources, a community center to serve both its senior community better, but to also to provide local families and youth a place to gather, recreate and develop relationships that are based on community. The recent opening of the Douglas County Community Rec Center in Gardnerville, across from Lampe Park, is the newest hot spot in the valley for all ages. From local basketball pickup games with alumni basketball players, to yoga classes for all ages & independent learning opportunities through classes such as learn how to use your IOS device, the new community center has seen early success in its mission of providing a place for the community to gather.
From my office at RE/MAX I can tell you that he parking lot is always busy with families and individuals coming and going from the center. Registration and sign-ups continue to go on inside as families sign up for annual passes, sign up for classes, yoga sessions, Zumba lessons and more.

As a Carson Valley resident the Douglas County community center provides an element to enhance our way of recreational lifestyle. Adding it to the community infrastructure of the Lampe Park system provides families now with one central location for running, basketball, baseball, skateboarding, tennis, racquetball, walking, events and so much more.
The Senior Center amenities were a much needed improvement in our community and the services that it provides will only enhance the lifestyle of our senior residents.
Residents can sign-up for annual memberships or pay low daily or monthly rates to enjoy all the amenities. Many of our returning college students spent their winter break last month hanging out with old friends & playing alumni basketball pick-up games. Disabled Veterans are welcome to join the center from free.
If you are considering a move to the Carson Valley, take a few minutes and stop by the Douglas County Community Center and discover all it has to offer in our community. I would be happy to make it part of our time together touring the community and looking at homes that match your search.
