City of Killeen Parks and Rec Dept

Agency Type: 
Municipalities, Visitors’ Bureaus, and Departments of Parks & Rec
Description: 
The City of Killeen has a very extensive Parks and Recreation program. On W.S. Young Drive, we offer athletics fields, where we host regional and national tournaments and the Community Center, which is a multi purpose facility with gym, meeting rooms and outdoors event area. On Stan Schlueter Loop we have the Family Recreation Center and Aquatics Center at Lions Club Park. The Family Recreation Center is called the Tommie Harris Fitness Center, as a tribute to the NFL Player, who donated the gym equipment. Tommie Harris, who has played for the Chicago Bears and presently is a DT for the San Diego Chargers (player profile), was raised in Killeen, and went to C.E. Ellison High School. We are very grateful for his generous gift and proud to honor his name in this manner. On Roy Reynolds, you will find the Stonetree Golf Course. It was built in 1970 but was completely renovated in 2005. Open to the public, we hold 25-30 annual golf tournaments and host some of the major area fundraisers. The course is laid out over rolling terrain with a wide variety of trees and several small lakes with fountains.
