WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)-- The location of a new recreation center has been released.

The building will be located in Cumberland Park and on the site of the Park's Barn.

The barn is currently being used as a parks office and some of the parks department will be moving into the new city hall.

Developers are already 11 months into the project with a few design ideas in mind.

Development Director Erik Carlson said some classes will shift to the new facility while the others will stay at the renovated Morton Center.

"We also hope to have classroom space for like our dance classes, yoga, things like that," Carlson said. "Things that are occurring in this building that will go up into the new rec center." 

The city hopes to break ground on the recreation center next spring.
