BCC’s Paterson Field House to Close for Renovations
May 25, 2011
The Paterson Field House at Berkshire Community College (BCC) will undergo major floor renovations beginning this month. The gym floor, which was last replaced in 1987, will be pulled up and a new maple floor will be installed by J. J. Curran & Son, Inc. The new flooring is designed to accommodate basketball, volleyball and badminton. The gym is expected to reopen in mid-October of 2011.

Additionally, the college will replace the flooring in the fitness center with a rubberized material designed to provide impact cushioning as well as upgrade the facility's lighting with high efficiency, luminous bulbs. The fitness center is expected to reopen in August.

Paterson Field House will still host the 20th Annual YMCA Wing Fling on June 25th.

Although the gym and fitness center will be unavailable during the renovation, the BCC Swimming Pool will be open daily from 12-6 PM from June 25 to August 26. Pool memberships are affordable with daily rates for individuals priced at $5 and rates for families (2 or more individuals) priced at $20. Season rates are $75 for individuals and $200 for families (2 or more individuals).
