Oak Grove Community Center gets a new look

PRAIRIEVILLE, LA (WAFB) - The Oak Grove Community Center in Ascension Parish has received a new look.

Parish officials unveiled the newly remodeled community center Tuesday morning. Construction of the existing building included nearly 600 square feet of additional event space.

Officials said the completion of the community center represents the growth happening throughout the parish.

"If you pass by here all weekend and see how they feel about it, it's always packed," said Ascension Parish President Tommy Martinez. "And I'm sure that now that it's enlarged, they're going to be more and more people coming, not only the community but around the parish."

By the way, the site of the renovated community center is where Oak Grove High School once stood back in the early 1900s.
