Hyland Park Reserve Recreation Center – Bloomington, MN
The Hyland Park Reserve contains 1,000 acres of park land bordered by three lakes in suburban Bloomington, Minnesota. The project was designed to be the centerpiece of this recreational area and serve as the hub of an extensive skiing, hiking and biking trail system. Because the Reserve is particularly popular during the winter, the building emphasizes its winter functions while remaining a viable all-season facility. The plan includes a multipurpose classroom/lounge with fireplace, snack bar, staff offices, outdoor decks, a rental station to store and distribute ski equipment in the winter and bicycles during the summer, and ample storage space for off-season rental equipment.
