This 156,000 sf “Supercenter” boasts two sheets of ice; a precast gym with elevated track, 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 and one for families. This was the first recreation center that BRS designed that the waterslide broke the envelope of the building and went outside.

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!

Apex participates in the BRS Benchmark Network survey and Rec Camp.
