Rejuvenating Community Recreation in Maryland Heights

Maryland Heights, Community Recreation Center, Maryland Heights, MO

Located to the west-central of downtown St. Louis, Maryland Heights is home to more than 27,000 Missourians. Looking to create a new civic hub for community recreation and engagement, Maryland Heights’ civic leaders worked with our team on a highly interactive feasibility study to assess the current and future recreational needs for the city. This effort led to strong support for the decision to create a brand new 92,000 sf community recreation center to replace the outdated previous facility.

The new center offers more space and a greater variety of activity areas while maintaining key elements to support the unique community programs the previous facility offered. Key recreation features include a two-court multi-use activity court, group exercise rooms, expanded weights and cardio training areas, a cycling studio, indoor walking/jogging track and an indoor family pool with three fitness lap lanes. Community amenity spaces include a multi-use events space, a pre-school, a babysitting area, dedicated seniors space, meeting rooms and a police substation. The center also creates new green space for outdoor recreation and activities and expands parking.

Together, we create design solutions to the greatest challenges facing our clients and society.
