The City of Jackson is opening its two recreation centers to residents who do not have power or water following this week’s severe weather. The Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center and the Boos Recreation Center will both be open on Friday, Aug. 13 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The centers are being made available to residents who are without power and need a cool place to spend time. Bottled water will also be provided by Consumers Energy.
Because there is a mask requirement for all City facilities, masks and hand sanitizer will be made available to visitors. The City is only planning on having the centers open on Friday, but will update the community if any changes are made. The MLK Center is located at 1107 Adrian St. and the Boos Center is located at 210 Gilbert. St.
