Lake Forest Recreation Center and Sports Park

With a commanding view of Saddleback Peak, the 25,600 SF recreation center is located at the center of the Lake Forest Sports Park. Sited on a plateau overlooking the "park commons" the building includes recreation office space, a double gymnasium, activity/dance rooms, a teen center, a computer/homework center and several meeting rooms with a "teaching kitchen". All rooms are oriented to the distant views to the south and the west and have large porches leading out to the shaded activity areas surrounding the building. The building profile is defined by a broad sloping roof gesturing toward Saddleback Peak in the distance and uses the materials and forms found in many of the vernacular ranch buildings of the foothill area of the Saddleback Valley.

Location: Lake Forest, CA
