The Revolution Park Sports Academy is a certified LEED® Silver community center that includes youth targeted spaces to host programs offered by the Police Athletic League and the Charlotte Boxing Academy. Additionally, this facility includes a golf pro shop. This project is the first LEED® certified project for the Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department.
Revolution Park Sports Academy functions as a facility that provides athletic and educational services to the local community, nurturing a sustainable social connection through sensitivity to culture, history, wellness, economic prosperity, and diversity. The center successfully exhibits a holistic approach to sustainability by adhering to three main tenants at every level and scale. SOCIALLY and ECONOMICALLY the building design creates a connectivity that is sustained through community interaction and a sense of place. ENVIRONMENTALLY, it maintains a focus on regional design while responsibly managing the site’s natural resources. The academy enhances its surroundings and betters the lives of its users. Recreation here is as much social as it is physical.
