Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and City Councilwoman Theresa Kail-Smith joined community members at Ream Recreation Center in Mount Washington for a pizza party and ribbon cutting re-opening ceremony on Thursday, Jan. 17.
“To have a safe place where the youth can participate in recreational, educational and social activities, is such an important asset to a community,” said Councilwoman Kail-Smith. The center serves youth in Mount Washington, Duquesne Heights and surrounding communities.
YouthPlaces is currently operating the recreation center and 18 after school and recreation programs. The organization also operated Ream from 2008 to 2010.
“The Citiparks and recreation flag football and basketball leagues are two of the programs that the kids at Ream have really enjoyed participating in over the past five years,” said John Marcellaro Jr., recreation center director.
Ream Recreation center is at 321 Merrimac Street in Mount Washington. For more information about the center contact Mr. Marcellaro at 412-758-5071.
