Papillion Landing Community Center
Recreation Done Right
Papillion’s new community and recreation center is a two-building complex that includes a stand-alone indoor training facility/field house (soccer, softball, baseball) and a stand-alone community recreation facility. The buildings provide a variety of facilities for various activities, including four gyms for volleyball and basketball, a permanent stage, cardio-weight fitness areas, aquatics area, locker rooms, fitness rooms, and a 200-meter indoor walking track. Community spaces also include youth and senior centers, meeting space, four multi-purpose classrooms, a large lobby lounge, outdoor events space, indoor children’s play area, and administration spaces.
“I’m beyond proud,” Recreation Director Lori Hansen said during a tour of the facility. “It’s just amazing to see the reality of your work that started with napkin sketches to seeing something like this. It’s one of the most beautiful community facilities I’ve ever seen.”
