Bethel Park Community Center

This 18,200 sq. ft. Municipal Community Center is located within the heart of Bethel Park adjacent to a heavily used soccer field. Located within a residential neighborhood, the facility was designed to reflect a series of “houses” within the larger facility, breaking down the scale of the building.

“Street-side” entrance and a “field-side” entrance towers were utilized to signify gateways from the town and recreational fields. The facility includes a large flexible multi-purpose room with stage, Classrooms, Adult & Youth Lounges, Game Room and Satellite Library providing a multitude of activities for the community.

The municipality’s desire to establish an aesthetic standard for the community are reflected in the choice of materials including; brick, split-faced masonry and stone. Community contribution programs were designed into the facility which contains over 2000 engraved donation bricks, clock tower and plaques honoring local community donations.
