Decatur Recreational Center

Decatur Recreation Center, Decatur, GA

MDA provided full Civil Engineering and Landscape Architectural services on this project. The scope involved an initial master planning phase to determine funding needs before a contract was awarded for the preparation of construction documents. This 1950’s building and site was in need of complete renovation in order to meet the current needs of the City of Decatur. Several programs for children utilize a newly renovated playground with improved drainage, an oval play lawn for various activities and outdoor seating areas. The streetscape, site lighting, drainage, service areas, walkways and landscape were all upgraded as part of this project. The assignment was to maintain the historic feel of the facility, achieve a LEED Silver rating and create a facility that the public would be drawn to for multiple uses. All of these criteria were met.
