Designed and constructed by Klassen Corporation, the 16,500 s.f. Multi-Purpose Facility includes a conference room, fitness room and offices for the recreation and park district staff. Outside the facility are new swimming pools, softball field, soccer field and a refurbishment of park facilities.
Robert Blair, Klassen’s Director of Architecture described the development of the Buttonwillow Recreation and Park project as special due to the additional programming services provided by his team of professionals. “We met with Marie Parsons and her board extensively to develop a program that both meets and exceeds the needs of their community. Together we created a design, budget and timeline that fast-tracks the project for the quickest, high-quality result.”
“We’re delighted to offer this type of facility to our community,” said Marie Parsons, Director of the Buttonwillow Recreation and Park District. “We are so grateful to the voters for passing the bond necessary to upgrade our facilities. The end result will be a community center unlike anything Buttonwillow has ever owned.”
Funding for the project is provided under Measure F, passed in June of 2008. Construction was completed in the summer of 2010.
