It features a 9,600-square-foot gymnasium - with basketball and volleyball courts and a walking track.
There is also a community kitchen, a multi-purpose room for meetings and child care.
Larry Umphrey, the director of recreation centers and programs for the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, said the Northeast Recreation Center was built to benefit those of all ages in the neighborhood.
He said the center cost $4.75 million. The grand opening is scheduled for Saturday.
And while there are no current plans for more new rec centers, Umphrey said the Park and Rec Board is partnering with the City of Minneapolis on a large-scale program to upgrade existing ones.
