Design for the future Community Recreation Center is underway. The planned facility is located at 2416 14th Avenue NW, at the former Performance Golf Center site. The approximately 64,000 square foot CRC will provide indoor recreation opportunities such as a turf field, multi-purpose courts, and a walk/jog track, along with community spaces and the District administrative offices. Outdoors, the Cushman trail will be extended through the site, which features an activity lawn. The design will accommodate potential future expansion.
The design team, led by BLRB Architects and Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture (BRS), began work on the Feasibility, Concept Design, and Proforma report in the summer of 2020. The public was engaged throughout the process, which included a series of open meetings and a Steering Committee comprised of community members. The study includes an operational analysis and business planning proforma of expenses and revenue potential. Click here to access the Feasibility, Concept Design, and Proforma report.
