The Freedom Center - Kanapaha Park
The Community Center at Kanapaha Park offers a variety of spaces for the park patrons as well as the citizens of the City and County. Located amongst the playground and ball fields, this 6,000 sf facility provides concessions, restrooms and open air shelter for the children, parents and athletes.
Sited on axis the adjacent Veterans Memorial, the Center acts as an extension of this unique element with its display areas and gathering spaces. The interior contains two assembly spaces for nearly 300 people and offer a stage-like setting for outdoor performances. The regional design of the entrance reflects the traditional context of the County’s park structures, while the building as a whole incorporates the latest in energy efficient building systems and sustainable materials for Green Globes certification.
