Capital Projects

Mar 3, 2022

Throughout the year, the Recreation Centers of Sun City West works to provide their members some of the best facilities and amenities in the nation through the completion of capital projects. Sometimes it can be difficult to keep up with the amount of projects being worked on and their closure/reopening dates, so the Rec Centers have put together this webpage to help keep members informed. 

We understand schedules may not always be convenient for some members, but we do our best to limit the impact on usage. Schedules are determined by a variety of factors including budget cycles, contractor schedules, permitting requirements, weather factors, etc. 

Below you can find a tentative schedule of upcoming and current capital projects.
