Blue Valley Recreation Announces Name of New Indoor Facility
Overland Park, KS

The Blue Valley Recreation Commission’s (BVRC) newest addition located at 143rd Street and 69 Highway has a name. Construction began last year on the north side of the Blue Valley School District’s Hilltop Campus. The indoor facility for fitness, dance, basketball, volleyball, and pickleball will be known as the Blue Valley Recreation Center at Hilltop. Because of the new facility’s name, the Commission will rename the existing Recreation Complex located on 137th Street to the Sports Complex.

“The new facility is based on community needs and allows BVRC the opportunity to better meet those needs,” said executive director Steve Baysinger. “It also provided the opportunity to align our facility names with the major functions of the facilities.”

The facility name speaks to the active nature of the building that will provide more drop-in recreation activities than any of the Commission’s current facilities. In addition to eight sports courts, the Rec Center will house a 9,700-square foot strength and cardio area with Life Fitness machines, Fitness on Demand, and various strength and cardio classes. The 1/7 of a mile indoor walking track is elevated around much of the court space for an uninterrupted lap. Blue Valley Rec’s popular dance program will also move to the new building starting with January classes.

 Membership fees are being finalized and will be available for purchase mid-October with the building scheduled to open later this year. Please check for the latest updates.
