The Community Center was established in 1954 by a group of concerned citizens dedicated to the development of better health and wholesome recreation.
In 1966 the Community Center became part of Dalton Parks and Recreation Department.This additional expansion provided additional recreational services to the residents of the Eastside Community. The Community Center offers many different types of activities for all ages. Basketball, soccer, softball, swimming, computer lab, tutoring, weight room facilities, dance classes, aerobics, meeting space and rental space for receptions and parties.
Plans are currently underway for the construction of a new much larger Community Cente. Completion date set for December 2011 will give DPRD much need athletic facilities as wel as space for community collaborations. The new facility will have two gyms, an indoor walking track, a state of the art computer lab, weight room, aerobic room and other rooms for outside groups. The new facility will also include space for the Creative Arts Guild programming, Dalton Regional Library, Whitfield County Health Dept. and an information center for the Dalton Police Dept.
