A Community Coming Together!
That is what Parkside is all about. For years Wellman residents and visitors have talked about having a place for all to go for recreation and other social activities. There was a desire for a large banquet room where meetings or wedding receptions could be held, a desire for professional child care facilities, and a desire for excellent recreational programming. With the completion of the Parkside Activities Center in January 2010 Wellman residents and visitors now have all of that!
The Parkside Activities Center is a 38,900 square foot multi-level, multi-purpose facility with professional child care; a Mid-Prairie Pre-School; a 320+ person banquet hall; an activities room with a Wii, pool table, bumper pool table, and other activities; a regulation basketball court; two smaller practice basketball courts; a regulation volleyball court; two practice volleyball courts; and a health club style gym facility featuring the latest treadmills, ellipticals, and weight equipment. Parkside recently became home to another positive addition to the Center — JET Physical Therapy is now located on-site and is open for business.
For a community of 1,500 people, the Parkside Activities Center is a long-sought dream come true for many residents and visitors.
