Alamo Recreation Center


Alamo Recreation Center offers year-round inclusive Therapeutic Recreation programming for adults and seniors with differing abilities. 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.
