The Oakley Recreation Center is a new one-story multi-use building. The building is designed for a variety of recreation activities and community events. The new structure includes a large dividable community room, performance stage, a commercial kitchen and food storage area, offices and conference space, restrooms, storage, and an uncovered outdoor patio. With a capacity of up to 800 people, the Recreation Center provides the space that was greatly needed for events that unite this fast-growing community.
Gates & Associates provided site improvements, which included extensive grading, landscaping and irrigation, retaining walls, bioswales, site paths, service pad, permeable paving, bicycle and vehicular parking, concrete curbs and sidewalks, and tree replacement. There is space for large outdoor gatherings and athletic fields.
The Oakley Recreation Center is designed to demonstrate sustainable building design.
