I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking about when the new recreation center will open. Well, it was recently announced that the brand new FishHawk Recreation Center in The Villages will officially open on Tuesday August 9th at 2pm with a Grand Opening Celebration scheduled for August 10.
Like most of the newer rec centers in The Villages, FishHawk will have a family pool, 6 pickleball courts, 2 tennis courts, bocce ball courts, shuffleboard courts, horseshoe pits, pool tables, card rooms and meeting rooms inside.
As the name suggests, the decor of FishHawk is a throwback to a rustic fish camp. The goal of each of The Villages rec centers is to provide a unique themed atmosphere and FishHawk is no different. From the moment you walk through the door with the “Gone Fishin'” sign above it, you are transported back in time to when you perhaps visited your grandparent’s country fish camp.
