Excelsior Springs Community Center

Excelsior Springs, Missouri

The goal of the Excelsior Springs Community Center and Recreation Complex is to develop a facility that will bring families together, provide youth with a variety of choices to encourage them to stay in town, give seniors a place to go, and build unity and pride in the community. The architecture is inspired by the historic Hall of Waters building and the nearby High School.

BRS and SFS conducted a feasibility study that included a business plan which resulted in a design for a community center that is affordable to develop, operate and maintain and that offers programming for users of all ages and abilities. Based on a survey of citizens, the center will include a leisure pool, indoor waterslide, weights and fitness area, walk/jog track, community rooms, senior center, gymnasium, lap pool, child watch area, and racquetball court. A public forum of citizens confirmed the priorities while having fun playing our interactive Card Game. BRS was the plan advisor, recreation components advisor and lead on the construction documents.
