Designed for families and residents of the Parkdale neighborhood in East Las Vegas, the $5.1-million, 12,130-sq-ft recreational center replaces a facility built in 1978. The new structure includes a gymnasium, fitness center and multipurpose rooms. Large, covered overhangs serve as a “front porch” on three sides of the building’s perimeter, providing shade for the building and residents enjoying the outdoors. The developers’ main goal was to design a building that would become “a beacon and symbol for a community that was in need of reinvestment of cultural and recreational resources,” according to the submission. The entryway and lobby incorporate wood from glulam beams recycled from buildings that were demolished prior to the start of new construction.
