Community Center: Three Easy Add-Ons For Your Facility

Three Easy Add-Ons For Your Community Center

As the influence of your community center grows in your area, you should be looking for ways to expand and grow your influence even more. This is also true if you are building a new community center. The best way to ensure a smooth expansion or add-on is to build a center that is capable of growth.
As an organization, SFA hopes that all of our community centers expand and grow. Planning for the future will greatly help this process, but expansion is still possible even if you haven’t planned for it. In today’s post, we’ll look at three easy add-ons that will give your facility more appeal.

  1. Racquetball Court

In our last blog, SFA discussed why having a racquetball court is beneficial. It is good for your health and is a major appeal to adults looking to stay physically active. However, one of the other benefits was in its ease. Few things are easier to implement in a community center than racquetball, as it only requires walls, hardwood floors, and a few court markings.
If you are building a community center, we recommend adding racquetball. If your center is already built, this will be a very doable add-on that won’t break the bank.

  1. Playground

Most community facilities already have a playground — but if yours doesn’t, they aren’t very difficult to build. If you are building a new facility, you have multiple options. You can build an indoor playground or you can build an outdoor playground with the potential of expanding it. For existing facilities, building an indoor playground might be more difficult, but it isn’t impossible.
An outdoor playground is much more feasible, and if you own a small portion of the land around your facility — which you most likely do — you can have a playground installed in a matter of weeks.

  1. Fitness Center and Track

One thing that community centers often underestimate is the demand for a fitness center. So, while your community facility almost certainly has some sort of fitness center or weight room, you might learn that it isn’t nearly big enough. For most facilities, expansion of a fitness center is more likely than building a new one outright.
A great way to add-on is to build it on the second floor of your facility, adjacent to the basketball courts, with an added track. Adding a track is more extensive than a simple expansion, but your community will thank you for it.
