The City of Longview Parks and Recreation Department hosts three recreation centers: Broughton Recreation Center, Green Street Recreation Center, and Paula Martin Jones Recreation Center. These facilities allow space for various classes and events to all age groups.
An interdisciplinary social study – science curriculum effectively teaches the rules of bicycle, auto and pedestrian safety in the classroom. Patrol officers from the Longview Police Department and trained volunteers will oversee the actual practice of these guidelines in Safety City. Children will thus have the opportunity to develop a healthy respect for community laws and law enforcement personnel. When fully implemented, the curriculum will also address the areas of anti-victimization and substance abuse.
Located at Ingram Park, the Dodson Action Sports Complex was constructed on the former tennis courts. The amenity is the result of a public-private partnership in which the City of Longview provided $40,000 funds to match the amount raised by community volunteers. The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and Longview City Council approved of naming the facility the Dodson Action Sports Complex in honor of Brian Dodson who led the volunteer and fundraising effort. Learn more about the project on the volunteer group's Facebook page.
The City of Longview has several splash pads available to the public. These facilities are all free of charge and guarantee a great way to beat the summer heat.
