What We Do
The mission of the Community Recreation Center is to enhance the quality of life in the township by providing the best possible recreational facilities, open natural spaces and programs for its citizens and surrounding communities.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:
The Community Recreation Center (CRC), a 90,000 sq. ft. fitness, aquatics, recreation and community center, is surrounded by 475 acres of nature and outdoor recreation.
Architecturally the Community Recreation Center forms a bridge between the outdoors and indoors. The exterior design was to integrate with the Boyce Mayview Park setting and appear as a park structure with natural exterior materials; brick, cultured stone, a wood like siding and generous amounts of glazing to allow views into the building during the evening. In addition this allows day time participants spectacular views of the surrounding hills and park, woods and fields during the four seasons of the year.
Well thought out "Green" design elements have been utilized throughout the facility to minimize energy usage such as thermal efficient glass, super insulated building shell, the use of natural light and high-efficiency mechanical units, to name a few. The use of high recycle requirements on specific interior finishes and the use of native plantings and low water consumption plant landscaping have also been noted as "green" design elements.
