The Rainbow Recreation Center is a collaboration between the City, architect and community through multiple meetings addressing identify, safety, beauty, and programmatic need. The project demolished the existing recreation center and constructed a new, expanded recreation center around an existing gymnasium to support multiple programs, weekly food distribution, engage and build community in an underserved area of the City. The name "rainbow" reiterates themes of diversity, inclusivity and beauty.
