Dr. Richard Showers, Sr. Center

Dr. Richard Showers, Sr. Center, located at 4600 Blue Springs Road, is the newest recreation center in Zone 2. Formerly the Northwest YMCA, the facility was fully renovated in 1995 with City of Huntsville/Community Development funding.

The opening of this facility represents a new concept in community recreation. This unique facility houses not only Recreation Services programs and activities, but facilities for the Huntsville Madison County Library, Girl's Inc. and the offices of William H. Council High School alumni.

The center features a gymnasium, an indoor pool, two outdoor basketball courts, one instructional kitchen, classrooms and meeting rooms. This center offers aerobics classes, health seminars, an after-school program, a Spring Break program, a Summer Camp and a Spring Basketball League along with other planned and ongoing programs. Computers are available for public use in the Library along with the basic computer classes which are offered.

The facility is totally accessible for the physically challenged, as is the recently completed playground.
