201 President St.
The Community Center is a 24,000-square-foot multiuse recreation facility located at Harmon Field adjacent to the existing Herbert Hasell Aquatic Center. The facility will be LEED gold-certified and will provide the community with recreational spaces, meeting rooms, a small library and a central location for various community services, including summer camps and educational programs. The design of the building responds to its contextual setting through development of a strong central axis that links to the adjacent existing recreational pool.
