The idea to establish and develop Hill Bottom Recreation Center was conceived in 1991 while we were serving the UNHCR in Uganda. In 2007 we established a community recreation center that delivers a safe and relaxing sanctuary for the residents of Addis Ababa.
Being inspired by one of our favorite old school Ethiopian song, Gara Sir New Betish, we aptly named our our dream centre, Hill Bottom.
Hill Bottom's aim was to render a wide range of sports and health facilities for newly emerging middle class society living in Ayat, Sunshine county club and CMC.
During the 13 years, the need of the community has grown to the extent of requiring a wide range of services which inspired us to develop more health and sports facilities.
The ever increasing influx of the younger community from crowded urban center to Ayat area inspired us to think and develop beyond our existing sports and health facilities into a luxury middle class apartments at the Hill bottom compound to fit the modern lifestyle combined with ranges of health and sports facilities creating a village of its own.
