Park District of Forest Park
New Roos Family Recreation Center
The new Park District of Forest Park recreation center will be located at the corner of Harrison Street and Circle Avenue in Forest Park, adjacent to the Park District’s current facility. The Park District acquired this three ace site that once was the home for the Roos cedar chest factory which at one time was the largest industrial concern in Forest Park.
FQC was selected by the Park District as construction manager early in the process to provide the Owner and design team with preconstruction and construction services including; cost estimating, value engineering, scheduling and phasing plan leading to the development of Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) and the construction of the new facility.
The new Recreation Center will include an 8,078 square foot gymnasium with main court and a two lane walking track, fitness zone, two multi-purpose rooms, storage and offices. The site design includes a central pavilion shelter, play structure, theater style terrace seating along with a meandering walking path and soccer field. The design also includes the reconfiguration of the current main drive to include new parking with drop off and pick off lanes.
