The Center of Recreational Excellence (CORE)
The Center of Recreational Excellence (CORE) offers a fun-filled place to play, exercise, and socialize. The CORE supports many types of recreation including leisure and competition aquatics, indoor soccer, a multiuse court gym, fitness center, jogging track, and a three-story indoor play structure.
The CORE replaces antiquated facilities, enhancing the area’s quality of life and boosting health and wellness. In offering something special to every age group, the rec center strengthens community as it strengthens muscles. Energy-efficient building design helps reduce overall operating costs, keeping the facility affordable for all income levels. A striking exterior catches drivers’ attention along the highway.

The CORE is the result of a collaboration between private and public stakeholders. Many institutions came together to create an inspired recreation center that would attract both business and people to the community. DPS served as Associate Design Architect, joining forces with Architect-of-Record Barker Rinker Seacat to bring this unique vision to life.
