Soledad Community Center Capital Campaign

Soledad Community Center Capital Campaign


Built in 1993, the 23k square foot Soledad Community Center is where neighbors become friends, children grow and succeed and our community is strengthened. The center is home to the Soledad Parks and Recreation Department, which provides the community with various programs, activities, and services for all ages. The Community Center provides a fitness center, full-service kitchen, a computer/homework lab, two multi-purpose rooms, and a 10k square foot gym with a small stage. A safe space for people to gather, work out, socialize and be active, the Community Center serves almost 3000 people monthly.

Plans for the Future

To continue to grow, provide an environment of accessibility and ensure the longevity of our programs and services, we must make significant facility upgrades. Your generosity will help Soledad Parks and Recreation to renovate and improve so that we can provide more opportunities to all abilities and provide more and better services to our community.

The aging and well-used facility needs upgrades and renovations to ensure increased accessibility, use opportunities and longevity. Plans to improve the accessibility and services provided through improvements at the Community Center include:

  • complete kitchen renovation
  • ADA accessibility improvements throughout the facility
  • gym lighting
  • electrical and stage upgrades
  • HVAC upgrades and improvements
  • emergency services upgrades
  • outdoor lighting, landscaping and EV charging
