Excelsior Springs Community Center

A facility that brings families together.

The goal of the Excelsior Springs Community Center and Recreation Complex is to develop a facility that will bring families together, provide youth with a variety of choices to encourage them to stay in town, give seniors a place to go, and build unity and pride in the community.

Based on a survey of citizens, the center will include a leisure pool, indoor waterslide, weights and fitness area, walk/jog track, community rooms, senior center,  gymnasium, lap pool, child watch area, and racquetball court. A public forum of citizens confirmed the priorities while having fun playing our interactive Program Card Game.
