Ozark Community Center started with the city’s Parks and recreation department needing a community center, indoor aquatics facility and outdoor sport recreation fields for baseball, softball and soccer for their fast-growing community. The Ozark Community Center is a performance-based facility that boasts energy-saving materials and methods that have been achieved through the utilization of regional products and conservation-friendly systems.
This new 67,250 square foot Recreation Center houses community rooms, a double basketball court gymnasium with running track, and a 10,000 square foot fitness area, concessions, a juice bar, and locker rooms. The attached indoor aquatics include wet locker rooms, party rooms, a water slide, recreation pool, and a separate four-lane lap pool. The community rooms include a large, covered pavilion while the indoor aquatics houses a 2,000 square foot covered deck. The recreation center also boasts a pavilion with built-in grills and outdoor toilets for use as a trail head and destination location for the community.
