The facility opened July 10, according to a newsletter put out by the country club.

The community center is part of a series of projects totaling $8 million, including a new nature and equestrian center, an 8.6-acre golf practice facility and driving range, road and drainage improvements and a new beach pavilion.

“In a strategic planning process involving our entire membership. We worked to understand the marketplace and the lifestyle that attracts today’s active family,” said Steve Sestak, board member and past president. “We have now completed the majority of those projects, culminating with the opening of The Q.”

Among many features, the new community center includes:

  • A fitness center
  • Indoor courts for tennis, pickleball, basketball and volleyball
  • An elevated track
  • 25-meter lap pool
  • Multi-use rooms for fitness classes
  • A Kid’s Club
  • Locker rooms with sauna and steam rooms

  • Coffee and snack bar

The community center is also home to the community’s preschool, summer recreation and youth programs. Next to the facility is a nature-themed playground, as well as six recently renovated outdoor racquet sports courts and a new outdoor basketball court.

“The Q” is open to Lake Quivira residents and non-resident associate country club and social members.
