Oaks Recreation Center
The Oaks Recreation Center is phase one of a comprehensive master plan for Yunker Community Park, a 117 acre farmstead that provides a large, multi-use community park as well as rehabilitates and preserves the Yunker farm and several of its farm buildings. This “living” farm is incorporated as part of the master plan of the park. The Oaks Recreation Center, together with its associated parking, play fields and retention pond, occupies approximately 15 acres on the south half of this 117 acre park site. ARC was charged with providing a high quality fitness center on a very tight budget. The park district retained ARC as both architect and construction manager to bring the project seamlessly from concept to completion.
