Kimmel Bogrette worked with Haverford Township to design a new 35,000-square-foot Community Recreation & Environmental Education Center that fulfills a long-held dream for increased indoor recreational offerings for community residents. Spaces in the building provide recreational and educational opportunities for children, adults and seniors, with a double gymnasium for basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer, summer camps and special events; an indoor walking track; multipurpose rooms; and a health and wellness area for all ages. The back of the Center offers views from a deck and terraces that act as a gateway to numerous trails and habitats. The facility was designed as an indoor and outdoor environmental lab that includes interactive energy consumption displays and nature labs. The Township proceeded with the design and construction of the Center after completing a MasterConcept Plan study with Kimmel Bogrette and Ballard*King recreational consultants in 2007 that explored costs and amenities for the new building.
