Westside Community Center to expand operational hours and days

The City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services (PRCS) department is now accepting proposals from local businesses, organizations, community partners and service providers interested in renting space on Saturdays for events in the Westside Community Center (WCC), thanks to community feedback.

Rental spaces include classrooms for up to 50 people, Hughes Hall for up to 120 people, or the main building for more than 150 guests. Birthday parties, fitness classes, education seminars, social groups, film showings, recitals, and similar activities can be accommodated such as this weekend's special event, WestFest, which celebrates the Westside community. Requests must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the event.

On Oct. 3, the community center will also expand its operating hours to allow for evening programming. The WCC will be open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Monday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
