Ardmore 'Clubhouse' gets construction go-ahead

Posted: Updated:

ARDMORE, Okla. -- Ardmore is taking the next step toward completing its Clubhouse project at Ardmore Regional Park.

City Commissioners approved a bid from Lambert Construction of Stillwater to get the $8.5 million family fun center going. Staffers say they'll have to do a little bit of paperwork before they can break ground on the 9,000 square foot facility that will feature an arcade, a zip line, a go-kart track, party rooms and a miniature golf course.

"Once we give them the notice to proceed, then they have 30 days, I think --  or less than 30 days -- to show up on site and actually start construction," Assistant City Manager Kevin Boatright explained.

Parks and Recreation Director Teresa Ervin said she's excited to finally get the ball rolling with The Clubhouse after a two-year process.

"It's I think what the citizens wanted, and it's definitely what our committee picked out, and so we're all ready to go," she said. "A venue like this helps so many ... it helps everybody to have a family-oriented place to bring their kids."

The city is hoping to start construction next month, and they're estimating the project will take about ten months.
