"Wa-Ke Hatchee"...what's with the name? It's a combination of Native American names combining "cow" and "water." A creek cuts through the 50-acre property on which the Recreation Center was built, and this watering hole was an important spot for the old Florida cowboys as the last source of fresh water for their cattle as they headed to Punta Rassa for shipment by boat to Cuba.
The center first opened in September 2005 and held its official Grand Opening on January 21, 2006. The park's Grand Opening was held on March 12, 2011 and is Phase 2 of this multiphase project. Phase One included the recreation center and basketball pavilion. Future amenities could include a water park "splash pad" and a ball field complex.
