Green Day once said, “Welcome to Paradise.”
That’s pretty much what base leadership and Corvias Military Living said during a ribbon-cutting ceremony April 13, which officially opened up the new Mojave Sky Community Center.
The 4.5-acre center built by Corvias Military Living features both indoor and outdoor amenities including an Olympic-size swimming pool dedicated for casual swimming. The deepest point is five feet. The outdoor area also has plenty of lounge chairs for sunbathing, showers and bathrooms.
“This community center is contributing to our mission,” said Col. David Radomski, 412th Test Wing vice commander. “It’s taking care of our airmen and ensures they can concentrate on their jobs and contribute to the air power of the United States and the free world.”
Radomski, along with base residents and Corvias Military Living representatives, cut the ceremonial ribbon in front of a large crowd of family members, Airmen and base workers. Following the ceremony it was time to go inside and see the amenities.
Inside, the club house is nicely decorated with portraits of flight test history on the walls and themed furniture.
The center has a workout room with exercise equipment and machines along with a basketball half court. The workout room also includes a children’s area.
The Mojave Sky Community Center is intended for base families and residents to relax and gives them a place to hold gatherings with plenty of sitting space, televisions, and a full size kitchen.
But, during the summer, the action will be outside by the pool.
“I really like the mushroom fountain,” said MyNga Day, 412th Test Wing Protocol.
