Milliken Athletic Complex in Centennial, CO
Sunward Steel Buildings is proud to have been a part of the Milliken Community Athletic Complex building project. Thompson Rivers Parks & Recreation District promotes community health and fitness programs, recreational sports, senior citizen activities and special events for the local schools and community members.
The Milliken Athletic Complex is the new home office of Thompson Rivers Parks & Recreation as well as several community groups and organizations including the Boys and Girls Club and Boy Scouts. Over $6,300,000 was raised through partnerships and grants to fund this community building project. This new facility was developed in a critical time. With the rapidly growing population of the community; the old Thompson Rivers Parks & Recreation Center was not large enough to facilitate the local population’s expansion.
Milliken Athletic Complex
The Milliken Athletic Complex is a 22,000 square foot community center developed to provide a facility for youth and adult athletics, special events, community organizations and active community programs including yoga, Zumba, dance and cheer. There is also a lounge and a computer lab, where kids can hang out, play games, craft, read and do homework. The recreation district’s board had been looking into adding on after-school programs, but they proved to be tremendously expensive. The Boys & Girls Clubs already offers these services at a low cost to families so it was great idea to provide space in the new building to the Local Boys & Girls Club Chapter in order to provide these services to the local community.
Corporate leaders donated water rights and land; and the city of Milliken itself donated a large sum of money to fund the project in order to benefit their community.
The New Milliken Complex was the Location for the 9 News Health Fair in late April of 2017.
