The renovation of the gym at Bay Horizon Park is done, and Northwest Park & Recreation District 2 is hosting an open house this weekend to celebrate.

The open house will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 23, at the gym. The event will offer gym tours, information on summer recreation programs and refreshments. The open house will end with a raffle of three free hours of time at the gym for any event or activity.

The district leases the land and the building from Whatcom County Park & Recreation. The renovation cost approximately $150,000, paid by taxes collected from the 2007 parks levy. The gym renovation is the largest District 2 project to date.

The parks district has also purchased new basketballs, volleyballs and a variety of other sports equipment for use at the gym. The community center adjacent to the gym will be available to rent for community events and private parties.

The gym is located in Bay Horizon Park at 7511 Gemini Street off Alderson Road. For more information on the newly renovated space, call the district at 360/656-6416 or email
