Dellwood Park Community Center Opens

For Immediate Release
Fairfax, VA | 07.30.2018

New center features gymnasium, classrooms, and event space.

The Lockport Township Park District and members of the Lockport, Illinois, community recently celebrated the opening of the new Dellwood Park Community Center. Designed by Dewberry, the 20,750-square-foot facility features a full-size gymnasium; three preschool classrooms; a multipurpose space that can be divided for classes, workshops, senior activities, and special events; a kitchen; and administrative space.

The building is set within the popular, 200-acre Dellwood Park near the Challenge Fitness Center, also designed by Dewberry. A small administrative building that housed the park district offices, also located on the site, was recently demolished in anticipation of a 4,400-square-foot administrative addition to the community center, for which construction recently began. When complete, park district staff will relocate to the new space in the community center.

Dewberry provided architecture; interior design; structural engineering; and mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering for the community center.
