Record-breaking year at Sprinker Recreation Center

The Pierce County Parks and Recreation Department announced that the Sprinker Recreation Center experienced record-breaking attendance and revenue in 2015.

Parks and Recreation has worked diligently to improve Sprinker and the facility has experienced growth across the board since 2010. All revenue from ice skating increased by 30 percent and public skating attendance rose by 29 percent. Youth and adult ice hockey participation grew by a noteworthy 68 percent and figure skating attendance increased by 31 percent. The facility earned a total of $944,369 in 2015, a 13 percent increase since 2010.

“The success we experienced in 2015 is directly related to the newly renovated ice rink,” said Pierce County Parks and Recreation Director Tony Tipton. “Thanks to the county-funded improvements, we can now offer more quality programs to meet the needs of our community.”

The Parks and Recreation Department continues to expand classes and activities offered at Sprinker. To find out more about the facility’s growth, contact Kyle Wintermute at [email protected] or Tony Tipton at [email protected].
