It’s exciting to share that s/b Magazine — the official publication of the International Association for Sports and Leisure (IAKS) and one of the world’s leading publications for architecture, construction, and operation of sports and leisure facilities — has published Maryland Heights Community Recreation Center. The piece calls the community recreation center “a dynamic new hub for recreational sports, wellness and civic engagement within the community.”
Upon opening, the community recreation center became an instant source of pride for the community of Maryland Heights when more than 2,000 members of the public visited the grand opening. In its first eight months of operation, the center welcomed 84,000 visits from members, had an attendance of over 38,000 for its rental facilities, has seen 5,000 seniors attend senior programs, and served hundreds of children with disabilities. The building is an icon for the city and is already driving measurable value and positive impact for Maryland Heights and the greater St. Louis community.
