Center heralded as an “anchor” for the Lake Jackson area

Leon County celebrated the grand opening of its new Lake Jackson Community Center on February 21, located at 3840 N. Monroe Street, Suite 301.

The new state-of-the-art community center is housed in the Lake Jackson Town Center at Huntington, where many members of the surrounding community flocked to the new site to take part in the morning festivities.

The new center is housed with two different meeting rooms – one large and another medium sized. The large meeting room has a seating capacity of approximately 85 seats and boasts a built-in projector with multimedia hookups to enable computer training. The medium meeting room can seat a maximum of approximately 38 people. It contains a large 52-inch television wired for multimedia purposes. Between the two rooms rests a warming kitchen complete with refrigerator, ice maker and microwave.

The Lake Jackson Community Center was constructed to support the needs of a growing community surrounding the North Monroe Street site. Initial improvements to the Lake Jackson Town Center at Huntington, formerly known as the Huntington Oaks Plaza, started with a renovation to the Lake Jackson Branch Library, which was completed in August 2012.
