:: NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR
THE team of professional and student leaders
for the DEPARTMENT OF RECREATIONAL SPORTS
looks forward to providing UF's students with a
variety of recreational opportunities this summer.
Summer is an excellent time for students to explore
new activities. Have you considered visiting the
climbing wall at Lake Wauburg; playing racquetball;
starting a workout program with a personal trainer
at the Southwest Recreation Center? These are
just a few of the learning opportunities outside of
the classroom offered by RecSports. Develop your
leadership, communication and coping skills with
an Intramural Sports team. Check out the Web site
to learn more about recreation on campus and how
you can get involved. Let us know how we can help
you get active for a lifetime beginning this summer.

A HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE
ESTABLISHED in 1918, LAKE WAUBURG will be
celebrating its 90-year anniversary this summer.
IN 1918, the University YMCA purchased twenty
acres of land and water at the north end of Lake
Wauburg as a recreation center for University of
Florida students. The journey to the lake took about a
half day on a winding road with the danger of getting
stuck in the sand and mud.
with Student Government funding of $225,000
through special request funds. Features of the South
Shore include a 55-foot climbing wall and team
development course, two large pavilions and extensive
waterfront decking and docks. The area is now
primarily used for large group functions, water skiing,
disc golf and fishing and has been in continuous use
LAKE WAUBURG currently incorporates the two parks,
North and South, into one overall recreational facility
primarily for student use. Almost 65,ooo visitors
use this unique recreational resource each year. The
history of Lake Wauburg has seen the development of
a small portion of land used by the University YMCA
grow to one of the largest outdoor recreation centers
in the Southeast.
IN 1928 Dr. John Tigert became president of the
university. The University YMCA dissolved, and the
land was deeded to the University of Florida with the
understanding that the Union would administer the
facility. The Union took over the running of Lake
Wauburg (then Camp Wauburg) in 1936, and the
transfer of the property to the University of Florida
occurred in 1938. In 1939 a recreation center and a
small residence were built on the property. Today both
are renovated and currently in use.
IN 1962-63 Student Government acquired what is
currently known as Lake Wauburg South. This is
a 72-acre (30.2 acres under water) parcel of land,
which the Athletic Association had bought from
a private citizen in 1958. The Athletic Association
had envisioned it as a retreat facility and an area for
team use, but no development of the land occurred.
Development of Lake Wauburg South began in 1982
THE DEPARTMENT OF RECREATIONAL SPORTS,
Recreational Sports Advisory Board and the Division
of Student Affairs are developing plans for a retreat
center at the South Shore. With a look to the future,
the master plan for the center is in the final stages.
The University of Florida's Lake Wauburg Recreation
Center is known as one of the University's best kept
secrets and will continue to improve with the help of
the student body.
