The largest of the three recreation centers, La Casita supports a wide variety of activities, both indoors and outdoors.
Outdoors, the facility has a fenced Junior Olympic size swimming pool and water splashpad, a shaded grass play area with playground equipment. La Casita also has four tennis courts, two racquetball courts and a sand volleyball court, all lighted for nighttime enjoyment.
Indoors, two multi-purpose rooms are available. A divider wall can be retracted to combine the larger Grande Room with the smaller adjacent Chica Room. Both rooms have a wood floor perfect for dancing. The Grande room is equipped with a kitchen for warming food, and features a double sink, electric range, microwave oven, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher and granite countertops. A large pass-through window allows food to be easily served from the kitchen to the Grande Room.
