Construction on Parc Grove's community center finished

The Fresno Housing Authority celebrated the completion of its new Parc Grove Commons Community Center on Tuesday in conjunction with a National Night Out event.

The 8,880-square-foot community center was part of the second phase of construction which started early last year at the 26-acre energy-efficient public housing development at Fresno Street and Clinton Avenue in central Fresno.

The center will offer educational programs and wellness activities for residents, the authority said.

In addition, 148 one- to four-bedroom apartments were also built with space for neighborhood gatherings.

“Parc Grove is more than an apartment complex,” said Preston Prince, chief executive officer and executive director. “It is a place where nearly 700 children call home. This new community center will engage these children and their families and expand their sense of community here at Parc Grove.”

The first phase of Parc Grove Commons, which has 215 apartments, was completed in April 2011. The development replaced Funston Terrace and Funston Place, an old public housing complex that needed remodeling. Before that, the property was home to old army barracks.
