Enjoy tours, the T-N-T Performing Company, safety displays and free crafts. Renovations were made with a $1.6 million Community Development Block Grant, made possible by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The 40-year-old facility has been remodeled with a beautiful new exterior, courtyard, gymnasium, a new HVAC system, and more ADA accessible spaces.
The gymnasium, available for all ages, is the perfect venue for the Recreation Department's popular youth sports programs. The game room is equipped with a pool table, ping pong table and foosball table. The Renette Center also hosts many popular and affordable classes including tiny tots, arts, dance, tumbling and cheer. Operational hours are Monday through Friday, 2:00 - 9:30 p.m. and Saturday 12:00 - 4:00 p.m. The beautiful new center is located at 935 South Emerald Avenue in El Cajon.
