Dignitaries from across Moore County turned out Thursday morning to "cut the ribbon" on the new gymnasium complex at Hillcrest Park in Carthage.

The new 26,500-square-foot sports complex will have two gyms with full-size basketball courts that can be used as four volleyball courts; a multipurpose room that can seat 100 people for classes and training; restrooms and a concession area; as well as offices for the Parks and Recreation staff. The multipurpose room can also be rented for meetings and other private events, and the entire facility is situated to allow for potential expansion.
