Community Activity Center History

Construction of our new Orchard Park Community Activity Center in Brush Mountain Park was completed in February 2020.

With projected increases in our senior and youth populations for decades to come, the concept of a community activity center for Orchard Park was first proposed ten years ago.

A Central Location, Ample Parking — An Idea Whose Time Has Come

This facility will serve as the home for the Orchard Park Senior Center and Recreation Department. It also offers space for special events, classes, and community presentations for all residents. Combining Orchard Park’s recreation department and senior center into one complex will not only address a growing list of deficiencies but will create greater efficiencies and new opportunities.  The Community Activity Center will improve the quality of life for all residents by offering social and recreational activities in a single, comprehensive, and innovative facility that will continually serve generations well into the future.

During our planning process, two options were presented and the smaller of the two received final approval.  The square foot amounts are as follows (note dollar amount are estimates). Phase 3 and 4 are options for future development:

$20 million, 69,000 square feet

$30-33 million, 136,000 square feet
