The West Bronx Recreation Center offers all members and visitors of the Highbridge community a range of recreational and educational activities. The recreation center offers activities from dance to indoor soccer in the 2,875 square foot complex. The state of the art gymnasium boasts three regulation basketball and two volleyball courts, plus a dance studio, computer room, and numerous gathering rooms.
In August 2008, the center delighted in the opening of a 1.5 acre multi-use synthetic turf ballfield in an adjacent lot and roadway. The field, funded by the city as part of the Yankee Stadium Redevelopment Project, is designed to host soccer, softball, and little league baseball. It features new bleachers, a water fountain, misting station, walkways and freshly planted trees and shrubs.
