The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Philadelphia District is constructing a new fitness center at Dover Air Force Base. The 58,000 square foot facility is approximately twice the size of the current facility.

The new $12.8 million fitness center includes a health and wellness center, two racquetball courts, and a large open gym with basketball courts. Customers will be able to take group exercise classes and health and wellness classes.

The Project Team broke ground on the fitness center in Oct. of 2009. Fitness Center staff plan to move into the new facility in Dec. of 2011.
