Brush Mountain Multi-generational Community Center

Construction of our new Orchard Park Community Activity Center in Brush Mountain Park is well underway.

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. The idea is to combine all of Orchard Park’s recreation departments and activities into one complex. Doing so will not only address a growing list of deficiencies but will create greater efficiencies of service.

This facility will serve as the new home for the Orchard Park Senior Center and the Recreation Department for Orchard Park’s youth. It also offers space for special events, classes, and community presentations for all residents. 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.

A central location, ample parking, and long-term cost savings — an idea whose time has come.

Regular updates on progress, decisions and financials will be posted on this page, at least every three months. So be sure to check back from time to time.
