The aging Louisville Recreation and Senior Center has served the residents of Louisville and surrounding communities for over 25 years, but was in need of upgrades and expansion to continue to accommodate demand and quality programs. The facility was completed after an in-depth feasibility study for expansion and renovation of the Recreation & Senior Center and the Memory Square Pool. The study included extensive public outreach, open houses, community-wide surveys, and regular meetings with the project Task Force and recreation staff.
The design process led to the development of a significant addition and renovation to the current center which includes a new leisure pool, lesson / exercise /lap pool, fitness center with group exercise studios, a turf gym, new preschool and indoor playground, and extensive renovation and addition to the senior center including lounge, meetings rooms, game room, and a new catering kitchen.
