The Hollowbrook Community Center (HCC) closed June 2016 for asbestos remediation and renovation work.  It is currently scheduled to reopen July 2017. HCC's renovations include a new roof on the entire building and an addition. A new entrance has been constructed where the old Atrium stood.  The building has been updated with new HVAC systems and boiler, new windows, LED lighting, new emergency lights, new flooring, updated fire and burglar alarm systems and new interior and exterior doors.  There is also a new ramp by the Library and new emergency steps from the Computer Lab.  Updates to existing bathrooms are part of the renovation and a new ADA compliant bathroom was installed on the 1st floor, on the Community Room side.  Both kitchens in the Community Room have been redone with new appliances and fixtures.

History of Hollowbrook Community Center

In the late 70s Ewing Park was developed on property running along Hollowbrook Drive.  Colonel Edward Harris led a drive to get a HUD grant to build the Hollowbrook Community Center on the site.   This was privately organized by local area residents.  The rest of the park development was funded by Green Acres.   The property was turned over to the Township around 1989 because of funding issues.
