South Suburban seeks public input for recreation complex

Posted

A new recreation complex that is expected to include a field house, ice arena and gymnasium with pickleball courts is being developed by South Suburban Parks and Recreation, and the recreation district wants the public to provide input on the new facility.

The new center, which will be nearly 200,000 square feet, will be built just southwest of East County Line Road and South Holly Street. In addition to recreation amenities, the center will house the recreation district's administrative offices.

The complex will replace the 50-year-old South Suburban Ice Arena and South Suburban's administrative offices near Arapahoe Road and University Boulevard in Centennial. Completion for the $50 million project is expected by December 2020.

Perkins + Will is the architect leading the design team, and Adolfson and Peterson Construction is the construction manager/general contractor.

Two open house-style meetings will provide the public a chance to learn about the center and provide input on the proposed plans. The meetings are at Goodson Recreation Center, 6315 S. University Blvd., Centennial.

The two meetings are Tuesday, Sept. 18, from 1-3 p.m., in Room 8; and Thursday, Sept. 20, from 6-8 p.m., in Room 5.

Perkins + Will has worked on a number of sports, athletic, recreation and multi-purpose event centers, including Denver Broncos Football Club, Pat Bowlen Fieldhouse at UCHealth Training Facility and Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Visitor's Center.

Adolfson & Peterson Construction has built a wide range of recreational amenities and athletic facilities, including Colorado Mesa University's Maverick Center, Gypsum Recreation Center, Stadium at Adams 12 School District, Parker Recreation Center Expansion and Westminster Recreation Center Aquatics Center addition & renovation.
