Since its grand opening in April 2016, the W.A. Foster Recreation Center, located at Mina Weil Park, has provided a safe and healthy space for the Goldsboro community. The design of this recreation center includes a 25,000 square foot facility program that includes a sub‑dividable gymnasium with retractable bleachers, youth and adult game rooms, fitness room, a preparation kitchen, a sub‑dividable multipurpose space for rentals or classrooms, exterior entry restrooms and locker rooms, two offices, and a lobby.

This building was named after the late Walter A. Foster who was instrumental in helping develop Mina Weil Park.
