The Park and Center will be inclusive of a diverse community of users, accessible, flexible in use, and thoughtfully designed. The new building will integrate thoughtfully within the park context; enhancing visibility, security and connectivity with adjacent uses, while preserving and protecting the verdant, pastoral setting and popular recreation amenities that the park provides. The new building project creates a “state-of-the art” facility that will foster community, wellness, recreation and learning. The building will meet programming, life safety and accessibility requirements within an efficient footprint, to minimize negative impact to the park experience and mature canopy trees.
