This building represents the first phase of a new park in a quickly growing area in northwestern Laredo. We began the project with a park master plan study to define the needs for the area and best uses for the site. The recreation center envisioned in the first phase grew into a full-service community center. At approximately 47,000 SF, the facility provides recreation programming, a branch library, a senior center, and community meeting room space. It also serves as an anchor for continued development in the area.
