Alamo Recreation Center offers year-round programming for senior citizens 55 and up as well as contract instructor programs for youth, teens, and adults. Alamo also hosts a toddler sports program, karate, dance programs, and special events. The facility consists of a multipurpose room, computer lab, a kitchen and an office. The park includes a playscape, multi-use field, Gaga pit, and a covered, lighted basketball court.

In 1974, the Parks and Recreation Department purchased land at 2100 Alamo Street to develop a replacement park for the East Avenue Park that was demolished to make room for the expansion of IH 35 and for the development of the University of Texas’ Disch Faulk Field. In 1976, the Alamo Recreation Center was dedicated. The center is named after the street on which it is located.

​​​​​​Per the COVID-19 Mayoral declaration, the Center is closed  to the public effective Monday, March 16th .  Please check the Closure page for update.
