The original Berkeley 2000 Recreation Center was opened in March 2002 and was 16,800 square feet in size. It included one large gymnasium with a curtain division, the Parks & Recreation offices and a conference room.
In October 2007 the Quad Graphics Gymnasium was opened which included a new conference and meeting room. The Quad Graphics Gymnasium was made possible through the Quad Graphics Windhover Foundation. This wing added an additional 8,750 square feet to the facility. In December of 2007 the west wing was opened which houses a state-of-the-art Gymnastics Center and added 12,600 square feet. A south wing, with an additional 5,400 square feet was added, but not completed at the time.
In June 2009, that south wing was opened as the Marshall Mason Multipurpose Center. It has been used for indoor soccer, volleyball, dodgeball, camps, and private rentals. Although small, it was the first ever indoor soccer venue in Berkeley County and enjoyed by thousands of residents. The wing was made possible through a very generous donation by Marshall Mason through his estate. In the fall of 2016, the need to expand the Flip Over Gymnastics program became apparent and renovations are underway for that. The indoor soccer league will begin the winter season in December 2016 in the recently acquired Ramer Center Gymnasium.
- The total square footage of the Berkeley 2000 Recreation Center is now 43,550.
- The facility is being used daily by hundreds and at times thousands of residents and guests from outside the community.
- It is being used for leagues, programs, private rentals, gymnastics events, basketball tournaments, private meetings, day camps, and special events.
The Berkeley 2000 Recreation Center is located at 273 Woodbury Avenue in Martinsburg, WV in Lambert Park.
