In 2001, the City of Bowie Municipal Gymnasium opened on Northview Drive, next to the Bowie Senior Center. This 27,000-square foot, $3.5 million facility quickly became one of the most popular amenities offered by the city.
The facility consists of two full-sized basketball courts (one 84-foot by 50-foot and the other 90-foot by 50-foot) overlaid with two intermediate basketball courts (74-foot by 42-foot) and overlaid with five volleyball courts (30-foot by 60-foot), which can also be used for young basketball players.
The gym can be partitioned into quarters with ceiling to floor curtains to allow for various activities at the same time. The facility also includes two team rooms that can be divided into four smaller rooms, a sitting and concession area, and office and storage rooms.
Various teams and organizations have scheduled time at the city gym. During open gym sessions the gym may only be used by city residents, living within the corporate limits of the city. The purchase of an annual membership card is required.
