Victory Forest is Fort Worth's newest multipurpose fitness and activity center.

Fort Worth’s newest community center is closer to opening its doors to an eager public.

Construction on Victory Forest Community Center, 3427 Hemphill St., resumed on July 3. Crews have installed the HVAC system and steel structures for basketball goals as well as cabinets and countertops. Painting and electrical work is also underway, and audio visual systems are being installed.

The gym floor installation begins in the next few weeks.

The outside of the building is also taking shape. The waterproofing on the building is being reinstalled. Brickwork on the back of the building is underway and the irrigation system and fencing is scheduled to begin.
