The Audubon Recreation Center was built in 1980 and was last remodeled in 2003. In the 2004 and 2019 bond programs, voters approved $6.1 million to expand and renovate the facility to provide enhanced health and fitness options to Garland residents. The project added approximately 5,000 square feet to the existing facility, allowing for increased capacity, an improved interior layout and renovations throughout the existing space. Improvements include:

  • A new fitness room - the largest in the Garland system
  • Two expanded multipurpose rooms
  • New lobby and reception area
  • Interactive projection system in the gym
  • Covered patio and lawn area for outdoor activities
