History of Two Rivers Activity Center

The community began to discuss the need for additional recreation space in February of 2008. At that time, Jamestown Public Schools Superintendent, Robert Toso, convened a group of individuals and organizations that shared a desire to work together towards the reality of a community recreation center. Over the course of several meetings the Two Rivers Activity Center Board was created. The founding organizations were Jamestown Public Schools, Jamestown Parks and Recreation, James River Family YMCA, Jamestown Tennis Association, and Jamestown Gymnastics Club. In addition to representatives from these organizations, community members filled three at-large board positions. This board met for several years to assess the community need, interest in moving forward, and to develop a business plan. In late 2014 and early 2015 the board determined that the time was appropriate to move forward with a referendum to secure a 1% city sales tax for the construction, operation and maintenance of Two Rivers Activity Center.
