One of the most active community leaders in the Hamilton Park community was a woman named Willie B. Johnson. Mrs. Willie B. Johnson and her family moved to the Hamilton Park community in 1956. Mrs. Johnson worked diligently to improve the sports and recreation programs for the youth in this community.! In 1983 this recreation center was constructed and named after a woman dedicated to her community. This facility is located in North Dallas just south of I635 and East of Central off Forest Lane.

In 2022 the neighborhood recreation center was renovated from a small 6,400 square foot facility that had 2 small program rooms and an outdoor gymnasium to a 28,400 square foot state of the art facility. The expansion includes a technology center, senior center, and indoor gymnasium and upgrades to the existing fitness center, kitchen and program rooms.
