Davis Diamonds Gymnastics is starting to move ground on its new site at 2570 Cowell Blvd. The facility will be approximately 14,000 square feet, compared to its current 9,600-square-foot gym at 2795 Second St. Davis Diamonds owns the new 1.05-acre parcel. Its Second Street space is leased.

The gymnastics center offers recreational and competitive gymnastics, and cheerleading classes. It hosts birthday parties, day camps, open gym times and parents’ nights out.
