Lee County Parks and Recreation improvements to bring temporary holiday closures
centers’ floors and upgrade its registration system during the holidays. Due to the nature of the
work, the centers will be closed temporarily and the registration system will be down briefly.
“Our visitor numbers typically are down between Christmas and New Years at parks & recreation,
and we expect these improvements will minimally impact the communities we serve,” Director
Dave Harner said.
Crews will strip and resurface gymnasium floors at Estero Recreation Center, Veterans
Recreation Center in Lehigh Acres and Wa-Ke Hatchee Recreation Center in South Fort Myers.
Closures will begin on Monday, Dec. 24. Veterans is expected to reopen Wednesday, Jan. 2; the
other two rec centers have a tentative reopening date of Saturday, Jan. 5.
WebTrac – the department’s online registration system– will have its software upgraded to create
a more user-friendly experience. The public will not be able to sign up for programs, events or
picnic shelters on Wednesday, Jan. 2, or Thursday, Jan. 3. Normal online registration is expected
to resume Friday, Jan. 4.
