May 15, 2017 — On the grassy knoll on the east side of Mound Westonka High School, ground was broken for the new Westonka Performing Arts Center (PAC) and Westonka Activity Center!
Westonka residents approved $22.95 million in bond funding for the new community facilities in May 2016. Months of work by planning committees, school and district administrators, contractors and architects led up to the groundbreaking celebration.
Attendees got the chance to experience virtual tours of the new facilities before heading outside for the formal groundbreaking and refreshments. The new activity center will include three multi-use courts, a wrestling gym, a fitness room, an elevated track for walking/jogging, community locker rooms and meeting/gathering space. The performing arts center will include a 600-seat theater with an orchestra area, a vibrant public lobby with gallery/display space, a green room, dressing rooms, and full-sized scene and costume shops.
