History of the Center

The Tecolote Recreation Center was built in 1968 on land that in the 1920's and 30's was one of the most popular motorcycle racing areas in the county. In the 50's the land was used as a dairy farm. The owner of the dairy deeded his 7.8 acres to the City to be used primarily for youth baseball activities.
