Ten years later on April 3, 1987 the center was named the "Gil Johnson Recreation Center" after Gilbert Johnson who served in numerous public and community capacities including City council member from 1971 to 1977 and deputy mayor in 1975. He will always be known to Mira Mesa as a man who was dedicated to responsible and effective government.
