OMNNI provided architectural design of a 4,500-square-foot structure located at the center of the park serving multiple functions for the newly improved Memorial Park. The structure features a concession stand equipped with a grill, additional cooler space, food preparation and service area, and walk-up service counters. There is a central tower that houses an announcer’s booth that overlooks the three baseball diamonds. An indoor warming shelter is oriented toward future ice rinks, cross country ski trails, and sledding areas. A covered picnic pavilion provides shade and cover from the elements while exposing users to a panoramic view of the park and children’s play area.
Expanded restrooms adjacent to the picnic pavilion and warming shelter offer handicap accessible fixtures. Natural light and ventilation are integrated into the design, and the aesthetics of the facility play off of the architectural vocabulary of the Civic Center improvements on the same site.
