BACKGROUND
The existing Moorhead Community Center was built in 1975 and renovated in 1988. With almost 30 years in its current state, the facility was outdated and in need of another renovation or replacement to support their growing membership. During the design process, the City established the following goals for the facility:

• to promote health and wellness
• to provide a safe place for students to go after school
• to offer the community a place to gather and connect

Taking into account the City’s goals, the design includes a gymnasium, community room, fitness spaces, locker rooms, teen room and party/babysitting room. The outdoor lap pool was enclosed and a zero-depth entry leisure pool and slide added. The updated exterior creates pedestrian connectivity and a safe entry and exit for patrons.
