South Kingstown recreational center
The South Kingstown Recreation Center facility features a multi-court gymnasium for sports and athletic programming. The courts are designed to hold full tournaments or be broken down for smaller pick-up games. A walking track, requested by the adjacent senior center members, surrounds the courts, featuring protective netting to provide a safe space during use. The center also features numerous multi-use rooms, exercise class space, and meeting areas. The building was designed to be a combination of metal building and conventional construction to meet the towns budget and scheduling needs. The site design was carefully thought through to be an effective epicenter to the surrounding community campus. Traffic and pedestrian circulation was designed to provide minimal intersections, safely connecting the adjacent school, dog park, sports fields, YMCA, and active senior center. The design also plans for thoughtful future expansion as the community grows and needs change.
