We’re proud to announce that Athletic Business has selected Maryland Heights Community Recreation Center as a 2018 Facility of Merit. Each year, Athletic Business selects just 10 facilities for the prestigious award that honors a facility’s design, program and value.

The Maryland Heights Community Recreation Center is a dynamic new hub for recreational sports, wellness and civic engagement located in a west St. Louis community. Situated prominently along the city’s beltway and adjacent to Maryland Heights’s outdoor water park, the center offers a prominent destination for residents, with significantly improved space and a greater variety of activity areas for community use over the former facility on the same site. Award jury comments about the project included:

  • “The elegant curves of the highway facade create a unified and powerful image for this comprehensive community recreation center.”
  • “The use of the site, the building form and design solution to protect the interior from highway noise are excellent.”
  • “A bold concept, rooted in a functional need, is detailed with craft and rigor.”

Our sports team has a reputation for delivering “Facilities of Merit”; Maryland Heights Community Recreation Center joins other recent winners of the award including Dickinson College’s Kline Center and the US Air Force Academy’s Holaday Athletic Center.
