Como Community Center
After much anticipation, the new Como Community Center opened in February 2020 replacing an older, outdated facility from the 1970s. Perched atop a hill in the Como neighborhood of West Fort Worth, the 17,600 square foot state-of-the-art community center features unique spaces for youth and seniors including customizable rooms for community events, classes, and educational programs, a commercial kitchen for teaching demonstrations, a senior fitness center with separate entrance, and a full-court gymnasium.
Outdoor features include a community garden for native plant education, two playgrounds, a multi-purpose field, and 6,000 square feet of covered outdoor space.
