Washington Park Community CenterRecreation
The Community Center at Washington Park includes a two-court basketball gymnasium, along with community, recreation and meeting facilities, serving adults of all ages. Programs include athletics, lectures, continuing education, arts and crafts, dancing, reading, and other hobbies. The facility is configured to offer flexibility so that groups of varying sizes can be accommodated. In addition to the gymnasium, it includes a large multi-purpose room, kitchen, four dividable meeting rooms, a library, reception area and administrative offices. Both passive and active solar design elements are key features of the facility. The southern quadrant of the Gymnasium building’s roof accommodates solar panels generating 18kW of power. Clerestory windows are employed extensively, negating the need for daytime use of light fixtures in all but storage and restroom areas.
