Gunn High School invites the community to a grand opening of its new gym Sunday, Aug. 18, from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The $9 million, 24,000-square-foot Titan Gym, paid for by the 2008 "Strong Schools" facilities bond, includes retractable bleachers with seating for 2,200; a main basketball court as well as three cross courts, volleyball and badminton courts; a weight room with free weights, weight, cardio and aerobic machines and a dance studio.
The new gym provides a second venue for indoor athletics on campus. Gunn's old gym is currently under renovation.
Sunday's grand opening will include a barbecue, tours, a ribbon-cutting ceremony and short program. It is cosponsored by the school, the Gunn Sports Boosters and the Palo Alto Unified School District.
