Hacienda Heights Community and Recreation Center
Hacienda Heights Community Center was opened to residents on Saturday, October 25, 2014. Based on input from the community, the facility was designed to house a multi-purpose space with a stage, scene shop, green room, and dressing room that will accommodate performance style seating for up to 500 people. This large multi-purpose room can also accommodate banquet style seating for up to 400 people. Other features include a dance rehearsal room, an arts and crafts room, computer room, and catering kitchen. The public will also enjoy seven acres of recreational park amenities such as walking trails, fitness stations, and lawn areas for outdoor gatherings and activities. A civic art element called “Circles of a Ripple” is also incorporated on the site by artist James Dinh. Many sustainable technologies, such as natural light, a high reflective roofing system, harvested wood throughout the center, reused concrete and asphalt, post-consumer recyclable content products, and drought tolerant landscaping make the new center an environmentally responsible addition to the community. For its extensive energy efficiency efforts, the new Hacienda Heights Community Center will achieve a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Rating.
