Project Description & Challenge

Located in an economically challenged portion of the County, this project is a new beginning for the social, educational, and recreational needs of this diverse neighborhood. As the prime consultant for the theming, design, and project management for this district park and community center, Marquis Latimer + Halback, Inc. developed a master plan and design prototype that is being used for other underserved areas across the County.

Solution

The park offers an 18,000 sq. ft. community center, pool, interactive waterfeature, and competition and multi-purpose recreation fields. The prototype developed by the Consultant, integrates specific elements of the neighborhood into the design and furnishings. The ‘neighborhood street’ of the community center building becomes the axis that connects the recreational areas of the park.
