The Town of Mammoth Lakes will begin construction of the new Community Recreation Center (CRC) this April at Mammoth Creek Park after Town Council on February 17, 2021 awarded the contract to Hamel Contracting Inc. The project will cost $14,831,040 to build with a ribbon-cutting ceremony planned in the spring of 2022.
The Community Recreation Center (CRC) will be a Sprung Performance Arena enclosing an Olympic size ice rink that will operate in the winter and in the summer, proposed durable sport tiles will cover the rink area creating a 20,000 sq. foot Mammoth RecZone. Combined with community driven and professionally branded programming, the new year-round facility operated by the Parks and Recreation Department will be a game-changer for recreation in Mammoth Lakes.
The CRC is the major recreation amenity at Mammoth Creek Park that includes three complementary components: the natural play area; National Demonstration Site 7,700 sq. ft. inclusive playground and the new minor-mobility hub with parking for up to 118 vehicles.
