The Rest and Recreation Center will be a one-of-a-kind facility in Arkansas and a model facility for affiliate branches throughout the United States. From the foyer to the specialized small and large spaces, to the fully-accessible outdoor space, the facility will appeal to the senses of each and every child, teen, and young adult, with and without special needs.
The new space will allow us to provide rest and recreation for more families in the Northwest Arkansas area. It will also allow us to connect with more volunteers from throughout the community, teaching them how to interact with individuals with disabilities and their families.
Our Building Program
The 10,000 square foot, new build construction is proposed to be metal building framed with a mix of metal siding and wood for the exterior. This will allow for economy and clear spanning capabilities. The exterior will have elegant lighting, signage, and architectural wood elements. The interior is fun, light and open with a whimsical theme based on the Ability Tree logo. As an example, one can see a 3D interpretation of the tree in the Entry/Reception area. Messages and wayfinding will be creative and found throughout the building. An emphasis on health, safety, and security has also been taken into consideration. Custom pieces and specialty equipment can be found throughout the multipurpose facility. The program allows for a variety of activities and services for all ages and accessibility needs.
