History


The Wright Recreation Center was built by the Atlantic Richfield Company who in the mid 1970s owned and operated Black Thunder Coal Mine Operations. They built the original infrastructure for what is now the incorporated town of Wright. Along with streets and other amenities, they also built the Wright Recreation Center and gave it to Campbell County. The facility became a division of the Campbell County Parks and Recreation Department and is a key component in offering recreation opportunities for citizens in Wright and southern Campbell County.

Features


Other than the gymnasium that was built in 1991, the original structure was almost 35 years old and was replaced with a new state of the art facility. The Grand Opening of the new facility took place on Tuesday, October 1, 2013, with representatives from the Parks and Recreation Board, county commissioners, and officials from the Town of Wright. The new facility square footage of 25,939 joins the existing gymnasium square footage of 6,787. The facility now has a three lane swimming pool, lazy river, hot tub, locker rooms for patrons of the facility and for school activities in the gymnasium, party / meeting room, weight room, cardio room, dance / fitness room, and spinning studio. The site also has picnic areas, shelters, and two playgrounds that meet the needs for all ages.
