MOSES LAKE — Moses Lake residents can come take a look at the Larson Recreation Center beginning Thursday. The rec center will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and Dec. 27 through 30.

Admission will be free for the “open house” period, she added.

Visitors will have a chance to see some of the features of the facility which replaced the original rec center, including a walking track and fitness area, a multipurpose gym and meeting rooms. They can also get a list of the programs that will be offered, which include drop-in basketball and pickleball, bean bag and ping-pong tournaments, some exercise classes and an open gym, among other options.

Recreation center staff will be giving away holiday ornaments Thursday and Friday on a first-come basis, while supplies last, Hoiness said.
