Funded by a local city bond, the Arnold Rue Community Center was the first new community center built in over 20 years. In order to engage the public, LDA held a series of programming and design charrettes with community members and city staff.
The result is a new, 21,000 SF community center building which includes areas for dance, sports, meetings, seasonal day camps, senior programs, after-school care, drop-in family programs, classrooms, basketball courts, a weight room and common areas for events. There is also a Stockton Police substation located at the venue, offering both services and security to those in the neighborhood.
