We’ve Got a New Name!

Bob Keefer Center for Sports and Recreation

Willamalane Center for Sports and Recreation is no longer.

In October, the Willamalane Board of Directors renamed the center in honor of outgoing Superintendent Bob Keefer. The newly christened Bob Keefer Center for Sports and Recreation hosts sports tournaments, corporate events, meetings, classes, parties and more — all situated adjacent to four artificial turf sports fields at the Les Schwab Sports Park. Athletic events at Bob Keefer Center have included tennis, basketball, volleyball and even roller derby.

Board members credit Keefer with securing the facility in 2010 for the district at a deeply discounted price. The building was previously known as the Regional Sports Center, or the Lane Regional Sports Center.
