Apex Center

Feasibility Study + Design

In a league of its own, the Apex Center is the second-largest public recreation center west of the Mississippi River and, at the time, was established as an all-day destination center for families.

This 160,000-s.f. “Supercenter” boasts two sheets of ice; a themed aquatic center complete with two slides, a tot pool and play structures; a teen pool for water basketball; lap swimming; and two spas—one for adults only and one for families.

Apex offers something for everyone, including a teen room with billiards and video games, climbing wall, children’s play center and much more. This is public recreation taken to the next level!
